Am I mayking cents?

Surfing profiles.....

People need to learn to spell. Almost nothing makes me move on to the next profile faster than a profile with two or three spelling errors...

there and their is forgivable
to and too as well

I don't even have a problem with using short 'words' like "I want 2 c u"

A profile I read today used 'sence' instead of 'sense.'

"Than" and "then" can irritate me after a while but I try to work past it.

Or how about this - right from a profile in my area.... she is looking for, "(a) MAN WHO IS GOOD ON THE BED." ON the bed? Doing what? Mind you the profile is a GOLD member - some idiot is paying 150 bucks for a year and thats part of her skimpy profile.

btw, I SUCK at spelling, and I am sure if someone wanted to they could go through my posts and find lots of mis-spellings. But my profile is clear or errors (yeah, I double checked before posting this rant).

Why am I ranting you might ask? Because there is no one near me that seems to have command of the english language. Its frustrating to re-read the same profiles every day - then a new one shows up (with the 'sence' ) and a tiny glimmer of hope comes crashing down

Nick...
Don't you mean "But my profile is clear OF errors..."
Just kidding dude. I feal your pane. ... lol

But I am a bit of a stickler on proper usage of the language. Even though in my haste I often neglect to properly proof my posts. "properly proof your posts"... say that three times..

This post was GREAT. I guess I have just gotten to the point where I delete an email as soon as I see "wold luv too meat you"...I don't know...maybe that is intentional...

Nick - I totally agree with you. It's frightening and pathetic to think that some of the people on here who are the worst offenders are college graduates! Holy cow - I want to know what colleges they went to so that I can be sure not to send my sons there!

Some of my favorites:

"I want a women that is fun" - ummm...dude, it's "womAn"
"Your very pretty" - my WHAT is very pretty?
"I should of called first" - yep, you should HAVE
"I can work majic with my tounge" - too bad your brain doesn't work that well.

Lusty

I too can not stand poorly written profiles. I did unfortunately run across what has to take the cake, it's for sharie4. I was so dumbfounded by her profile that I sent her an email letting her know that spellcheck is available. In response to that email I got a sad, also misspelled, little automatic reply and then an email from her informing me that no one "ast" me to write her anyway. The saddest part is that the pic on her profile is a mugshot from our local detention center and despite all this she still has a fairly impressive network. Go figure!

LOL at sportyfun and sexybbw...OMG; it's so bad that I used to actually be pretty decent at spelling, (probably from reading alot of printed materials which were proofed) but now from time-to-time as I'm typing in an im, I get stymied and actually have to THINK about it, or worse yet, fix the misspell or wrong tense or improper usage. It's gettin' sad on the 'net. LOL
