I take people who make stupid spelling mistakes that are obviously not typos even less seriously.

Mistaking they're/there/their and your/you're, those kinds of mistakes aren't that big a deal. I still take them seriously.

During a conversation, definitely. Don't really mind too bad over msn, etc though because I know not everyone's using a computer. It's a pretty big waste of time to capitalise and use long(proper) forms and grammar if you're fiddling with a phone/controller.

No. Grammar shmammar. White Chocolate and Gifted Mind have great grammar but they're the two most inane minds on this entire board. Kblaze has some of the worst and he's one of the most compelling minds I've encountered here or anywhere else.

Sentence structure and clarity are more important than what you capitalize, how you spell what, whether you know how to use "whom," where you put your apostrophe's, etc. Guys whose thoughts aren't clear or well-organized usually don't really have well-formed opinions. Not always, but often that's the case. I can't help but take them less seriously. Of course often the most ostensibly clear and concise guys are the most wrong - take Rush Limbaugh for instance, who is nothing if not clear and followable.

As long as I can read it clearly, I am fine. I stop taking people seriously when its like they are talking in code because their grammar is that bad.

Yes, it's a good way to judge someone. Especially if they're using the wrong "there, they're, their". It shows how educated they are, especially since i know nothing about them.

As long as I can read it. Most of the time when the grammar's so atrocious that it stands out to me it also coincides with the level of whatever statement the poster is making anyway, so it doesn't make much of a difference.

In fourth grade, we had weekly spelling tests. The teacher would say each word aloud and give about 30 seconds to write it down. So, one week she gives us there,they're, and their without using it in a damn sentence.
