For one thing, she wasn't necessarily stupid; she used proper spelling and punctuation in one reply, she obviously chose to type that way.

Drink Driving : This is fine (ie "Don't drink and drive")
Al bee nizm : It's pronounced "Albeeno" in Britain
BBC Sport : What could possibly be wrong with this?
Sigh rah que suh : Seriously, how often is this word said on the BBC?
