If someone emails you with misspelled words and bad grammar, do you respond? Page 38 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)
I received a HORRIBLY misspelled initial contact from a man, times two. He obviously forgot that he had already emailed me.
Since it was obviously a 'cut and paste' first response, I 'cut and pasted' it back to him, after fixing his numerous grammatical errors.
I told him to please save that version, and use it in the future.

I do believe that someone sends out a long message that may be a "cut and paste" version. He can send the version to everyone.

Well not every one can an expert. Like me some may not have taken typeing,and may not be the best spellers. So dose that mean im less of a person for it? Dose that mean i would not be a good mate ,friend,or potential love intrest. I hope that i would not be that anal about the world around me. But that just my thoughts on it.

I do respond, because I understand that grammar and orthography don't come easy to everybody, but if a guy goes the extra mile using spell check to send me an e-mail I definitely add a couple of good points to his chart. (But I have to admit, it kind of bothers me that sometimes I write better english than people that claim to be engineers or doctors, when I didn't go to school here and have been communicating in english for no more than 8 years...)

I have sent emails and posts with misspelled words, but thats because I forget to proof read, not that I can't spell. Sometimes my grammer isn't so great too. Nobody is perfect....Although if they don't want to respond for that reason. I say they are missing out on the gretatest gyu in teh wrodl!!!!

If I read a profile with misspelled words or bad grammar , I pass on by , that's no being picky , just being realistic , you want from others what you would expect them to want from you.....I also pass on profiles that always have the same old cliches " walks on the beach " , " meet for coffee " and so on , Give me a break ! give a profile some thought , how can you expect to " find " someone , when you can't even talk honestly about yourself ?.........

doesn't bother me..... as long as he is teachable!!! No, if he can't do simple math with his checking account, that could be a MAJOR problem. You see, my accounting skills aren't the greatest either.

A lot of men are poor spellers, but that doesn't mean they aren't quality guys. If, however, the entire e-mail is nothing but misspellings and horrible grammar, I'll usually delete or send a "thanks but no thanks" reply. With spell check and old-time dictionaries available, there's no good reason to send poorly spelled missives.

As for usage - "their" instead of "there" or "they're, " "your" when "you're " is correct - that's plain sloppiness on their parts. Yes, English is a confusing language but if it's your first language, you should know the difference between words. I've received e-mails from college graduates with these minor mistakes and all turned out to be terrific men.

Sometimes it's pathetic. I was contacted by a man on another site and when I read his profile, I wanted to cry for him. It screamed of loneliness and longing for a person in his life. He ended it with: "I just want a frend......"

I also cringe when I get an e-mail where "u" is substitued for "you" and 'r" for "are." Plain laziness and that's a huge turn-off!

For all of us typists out there, there are also people who use the "hunt and peck" method. I can type 90 wpm with the rare error, so it's a breeze for me to correspond. However, I've yet to program a computer and would loathe for someone to think less of me because of it.

What rubbish to judge someone on spelling, but if thats Your standard stay narrowminded you will limit some wonderfull people you'll never know, based on typing, so what, yes i could see if someone wrote in a horrible fashion that Could be a potential problem and the key word being COULD. I Speak Read And Write in 3 languages(though not fluent in the other 2, more #2 than# 3 being Spanish, English being my Mother tongue. Speaking is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more Important than Writing thats the whole Worlds base for communication, always period! And im a avid reader, in fact i hate the style of most of the books i read because people over do Words with no meaning and say too much of the same thing over and over agin in there books- But in person they may or may not speak real well

As long as it isn't the majority of the message and they have something interesting or intelligent to say and they aren't rude, I'll respond. I know, there's typos out there, but if you spell like an uneducated hick, I'm not going to respond. If it's a "u r so hot" or a "hi whats up?" I won't respond to the "u r so hot" emails, because if you can't bother to put it in a real sentence, then I can't bother to respond. (And, I'd much rather be pretty than hot!) ;) If it's a "hi what's up?" I will look at their profile and determine if it was just a quick message or they just don't care about first impressions. I for one do, because that is the impression someone will always have of you. Better to make a good first impression than an indifferent one.

If they are obviously from a foreign land, I ask them to have someone with whom they are close who speaks/reads/writes English review their profile and edit before going any further. BUT, the obvious illiterate person gets a reply indicating that I am an English-buff. How their profile actually translates to me is we'd have very little in common anyway.

I too find myself put off by bad spelling or grammar. I do know that some people write in a hurry or use txt script. Never sure if English is thier first language...Im happy to meet people from other nations but would rather they filled me in.

I not only can't understand why someone would send an email that sounds like a second grader wrote it, but why do they post on the forums if they don't know how to spell? Bad grammar drives me crazy. Don't people realize that it makes them look stupid? Or maybe some people don't care if they look stupid, they use laziness as an excuse to say others are shallow. The people that can't use capital letters for I or at the begining of a sentence ughhhhhh. "i seen" instead of I saw, I "left" you instead of I let you, and other obvious English errors just shows that the person is stupid and doesn't care about how they represent themselves!

There are so many programs out there that can help them, why aren't they using them???

Communication is important. If someone can't put words together, then there's a big problem.

Sometimes we just like to amuse, for amusing sake. People read in shapes, not letters...we can juxtaspose all we like and be textually luscious, bottom line....shapes.

I amn't picky about others' grammars and spellings. I am picky about myself of learning good English as it's my second language. If someone isn't capable of teaching me more than what I have, why do I bother to talk to him?
