It's to not too!

Is it me, but I'm noticing more and more posters misusing 'too' when they mean a simple 'to'? They seem to be learning their grammar from each other and reinforcing that if a sentence ends in 'to' then it should be written 'too'. For example "I told him to buy it if he wanted too." Or "There was nowhere for me to go too." It's very odd and irritating. I went to a bad comprehensive school in the 70's and I know the difference, so it makes me wonder what goes on in schools today.
