I'd daresay non-native speakers write English better than native speakers. Why? Because they don't want to look like they don't know the language. Apparently people who've been speaking and writing in their whole life don't care if they look illiterate... But hey, kudos to the non-natives who want to look half-intelligent.

Indeed. I know that most people can understand me, even if I make spelling mistakes, but I try to use proper American.

I don't really care how people type unless they type like Bobo is pretending to:p but I find it harder to read when people type a huge thing and don't use paragraphs.

I think that was a common problem long before the Internet ever existed. If you want to get really picky, I'd say that a problem much more common to the Internet is a lack of proper capitalisation... and people using ellipses too much, of course...
