|Bad spellingPage 1 of 6 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)|
|I accept some typo's, bad spelling, poor grammer etc but if a profile is littered with them I find it off putting. When I am in chat with someone and typing quickly then I make mistakes, I also get very lazy about using capitals. I don't like text talk either.|
I don't think I would ever go as far as to reprimand a total stranger on the way they type. It's none of my business.

|God forbid if any one decided to alter your cutlery drawer.:) |
My view is, `yes` to basic writing skills, but to undermine a "communication" with little thought. Perhaps you could be a super god fairy of POF grammer.

|OP: Really! I don't mean to offend or be rude, however I just read your profile. I found twenty typos and a number of basic grammatical errors. What's that expression regarding stones and glass houses?|

|"vvv........It's a valid point, but where does that leave those that choose to have no visible pictures?|
somewhere worthy of admiration?
which is more than i can say for ad hominum attacks, but then what other defence could anyone have?
so many claim to like honesty/truth...until they're are confronted with it.
highlighting the flaws of others is a great way to showcase your own flaws dont you think:-)

|I'm of the opinion that the OP is just having a bit of banter and fun|
and wouldn't really msg other members about spelling mistakes on their profiles!

|Op, I have just read through your own profile. One paragraph, I have auto-corrected it for you. |
"I’m quite an intelligent woman (yes, I can string more than 2 sentences together!), but laptops, mobiles and sat-navs cause me a few problems. Although I can be quite shy at first, it doesn’t take long for my friendly personality to take over and then I find conversation quite easy. I do miss the connection, friendship and communication that comes with a relationship. I want to talk and not just via a computer screen."
Oerrr.. might be flamed for this!
Seriously tho, Im pulling your leg a little here, light hearted banter.
PS.. On the up side, you are a very pretty girl. :)

|call me suspicious, but i cant help wondering if the op got a message pointing out the errors in her profile, so she started this thread, and sent the link in reply?|
if not, then hats off to the op for taking the flack so well:-)

|I always get a bit put off if a guy says he wants to 'meat' me ! |
Lol best-foot-forward, this is one of them 'unintentionally funny' cases of poor spelling! :-)

|I would like to point out to the OP this is a dating site if you are contacting men on here just to tell them they cant cant spell then you are a time waster.|

|My daughter had a message on here, some time ago now, saying 'hi sweaty'. We think he meant 'sweety' . She didn't reply. |
Haha, this just shows how one misplaced vowel can change the whole meaning, and effect, of the greeting.

|Bad spelling and grammar puts me off – not if it's just a typo (everyone does that) but if it looks like she doesn't know how to write English then it's unlikely we're going to be able to have interesting discussions.|
And it's just lazy to make a mess of your sales pitch. If you can't be bothered even to put together a coherent profile, I'm going to assume your heart isn't in this site and you're not a serious prospect.

|i met one girl that once we sat down to coffee said "look i just have to ask, what are you really looking for?"|
i replied i'm looking for someone that will complement me!
she looked down at her coffee, looked up n said "you have nice eyes!"
some things get lost in the translation :-)

|Bad spellers often go on to become killers...I think that's what msg 102 was pointing out. Haven't done any research on it....but you'll probably find most of them can't spell.|

|Good job, dorathea, he didn't shout out the mighty 'thor', that could've spelled trouble! :-)|

|"I find people are more judgemental on dating sites than in real life."|

|Have just seen a headline 'Fistey girl seeks fistey guy'...conjures up some uncomfortable images, am sure she means feisty??|
