No, the way I use it is also to imply poor grammar as well as poor spelling.

Where do you use it? It's not on your blog, that I can see.

I feel I should at least mention The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

They say that people who are good at English are quicker at understanding shorthand/text speak/spelling errors, but people who understand it well might also have just learnt their English wrong and just assumed that it's acceptable usage. Your case is still very much open.
