Yeah, I don't buy it when authors say they purposely wrote books with grammar errors. As far as being stuck on stupid, I think I would describe the publisher this way instead of the author. If a publisher is not wise enough or too cheap to hire a good editor, it's not entirely the author's fault (unless the author IS the publisher too).
If readers want to buy books with poorly-written plots and just all around bad writing, then they are the ones stuck on stupid for falling for it and excusing the errors (if they recognize them). I have no problem with Ebonics in the dialogue but if it's in the narration, then we have a problem.
Ooh and don't get me started on those homonyms. "your welcome," "there over here," "she was part of it to,". Yup, it's annoying all right. I just wish people would learn how to spell definitely without an A.
