If someone emails you with misspelled words and bad grammar, do you respond? Page 35 of 54    (14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54)
anybody can have a bad day, or a bad week, or a bad month. and that includes doing something as simple as typing a message. don't be so picky about it.

Inability to type something as simple as "How are you?" when contacting a stranger for the first time is just half assed & lazy. Other errors could very well just be typos.

I try to take into account if perhaps English is a second language for them.
I don't not reply but I do tell them they are not my type. Because they aren't.
Really I have learned that someone who can not spell to a grade 6 level has very little to say to me that I will find interesting. If that is mean I'm sorry. If you are looking for someone to spend time with you have to be able to talk to them and you want to have some admiration or respect for them as well.

I find it funny how bad the grammer and spelling is of some of the people that say they would not respond to a poorly written email.

When I email somebody my current mood shows. If I am in a rush and good mood and scatter brained I might just blast out my feelings and thoughts and never proof read it and hit send.

If I have time I might proof read it and fix things. I think some people are way to hard too please.

As a RN, surely you know that the average DR can write or spell worth a s--t!! Give the guy a break. He is able to communicate; you are able to understand what he is saying

Yes Tigress youre so right. If you make an effort, you learn the language.
Have you ever been on a holliday? I mean abrod? Trying to figure out what people think of you? i guess not
I hate to disappoint you, easyrider64 , but really I spent 40 years abroad of US, which means English is my second language.

I didn't try to be sarcastic toward you but I don't like when people so easy find an excuse to not learn. I understand that English is your second language as well, but it appears rude for me when you live in English-speaking country and offer people to compete in your language.

You live in this country - you better speak the language of the country you live. I know that many people who were born here speak English very poorly, but they still don't have to speak your language unless they gonna live in your country.

I want to assure you, I tried to learn German and French. The last one I found most complicated to learn because you have to remember EACH word in male/female meaning, not just rules. My first language is Russian, but I would never complain that's too hard to learn. Because I've learnt it in the age when learning was a game.

Ohh, and answer your question, I did travel other countries. I don't care what people think of me....I always get along with people even if don't speak their languages. There are such things like smile and willingness to communicate.

It is only a minor ordeal I think. Just as long as I'm able to translate it. But everybody has a pet peeve I guess. I'll take common sense and wisdom over grammer and spelling anyday of the week.

Good for you. Me too. In fact I've decided to include more slang and txtspk in my messages just to weed out the ones with a poker up the fundament!

Ur da man, Just me919. (Btw, you spelt 'grammar' wrong. lol!)


Your grammar, syntax, and punctuation ain't too hot either. I'd bet your spelling isn't perfect.

Well after 35 pages of "grammar wars", I noticed that even the best of you seem to spell the very word "grammar" wrong.
Is there no justice?

Evev though I have 2 grad degrees, I still make typos.
If subject and verb do not match, if the man uses explatives, slummy words for female body parts AND spells those words incorrectly"I love big beasts but a tight Virginia is mor impotent) lol.. well, you know he is uneducated and crass.
You woulld avoid him in any case
If someone wrote ther instead of there, draems intead of dreams.. and THIS matters, then you are erudite, pompous, as enderaing.. no LESS endearing than Chas Emerson Winchester the 3rd, and not a fun poisson.
Know the diff beteen a typo and a stupid person!

If the person emails me and he has a lot of bad grammar I kind of disregard
him as a potential. We would not be compatible if he wasn't able to write a
mailable letter.

Sorry, education is attractive.

Being educated is not the same thing as having gone to school. A person with two grad degrees ought to recognize the need to proofread. What's the problem with inproving your writing skills evey time you post or send email?

Occasional typos are ok. Stupid persons are not.

I couldn't agree more! If a person can't take the time to spell correctly and use proper grammar in their profile(which is supposed to be an accurate reflection of who you are) then I write them off completely as not worth my time. Unless they are hilariously funny. There are exceptions to every rule but if it persists or they can't carry on even a semi- intelligent conversation.......it's just doomed.

I can tell the difference between a typo and someone who doesn't know how to string together an intelligent sentence. I don't answer because I like intelligent conversation and the person has demonstrated that they don't communicate well.

If I was the kind of person a lot of people on here think they are (perfect in every way ) , well hell no I wouldn't respond , but seeing how there has yet to be a perfect person created , I wouldn't hold grammar and punctuation against anyone , and oh yeah if someone uses were and where wrong ,Just like to and too and you cant understand what they meant , who is the real idiot? Oh yea saying someone is lazy because they miss capitalization of the letter I ? Personally i would rather talk to someone totally illiterate then waste the precious breath the good lord gave me talking to such petty and judgmental people that would judge a man solely on his ability to articulate the English language . This is not aimed at the person that started this thread but rather the people that have responded with ignorance.
But to the poster if you reject someone solely on this basis, you may toss the best possibility you will ever have at total happiness right out the window , how often will your perfect match be putting words in writing for you? Hmmm what if he is perfect with his command of the English language but fails at being attentive? compassionate? understanding? apreciative? honest? loyal?loving? careing?respectful? supportive?
Which really matters most?

I don't think it's too critical. If you can't take the time to spell correctly or form a proper sentence, then I can't take the time to reply. Now, I am a bit lenient, if there's obvious effort, but if I have to ask other people "what do you think this word is?" the chances of a response are zero.

I wont even respond any more. If they can't spell, they can't communicate. I will accept pretty much ANYTHING else.

What is even worse - "ne1 no wut tym u wanna go2 the moovey?" which translated STILL doesn't make sense. And she told me I had bad "GHRAMMER" because I didn't type in "1337sp34k"

I have more of a problem when people use text speak.
I can forgive grammar and spelling mistakes up to a point
