• I can tell you that there is a generation who either don't know or just don't care that there is no such word as "alot". I know I see it a lot as well. : 0

      I don't hang out with folks over 70. Very few of my friends are even over 60. Anyway, regardless of age, it doesn't hurt to proofread before posting, does it?
  • I don't know, but my son doesn't do that and he is still only 12. He enters his teens next March, so maybe then he will start going through a phase of thinking it is "cool" to mess around with the English language, I don't know yet. Time will tell. Still, I never wrote or typed "a lot" as one word when I was a teenager, and I don't think any of my sisters ever did either.
