I generally let some spelling/grammar mistakes slide here and there (mostly because I'm notorious for making "typos")... so long as the writing overall is clear.
That said... the misuse of the following two words "slightly" irritates me:
affect - effect
Well, frankly, i get annoyed most by people who can't properly use your-you're and their-they're-there. It just makes me want to go bash their head against the wall (or any other hard surface for that instance). English is, as a matter of fact, my third language. But even i don't make such stupid mistakes...
And typos ftw, they sometimes result in funny twists on known words.
Ninja edit: also "ghetto talk" needs to be dealt with - even text like this is much more easier to read than some of the "proper english person's" writings in the likes of facebook:
