I look past all spelling and punctuation errors when I'm chatting because the key there is to express yourself as quickly as possible--errors will happen. BUT, it's entirely different when it comes to profiles. It doesn't take that long to copy what you have written and paste it into a program that has spell check. It can really help improve first impressions.

It goes both ways. I still can't diagram a sentence to save my life, but people who can't speak correctly drive me up a wall. Poor grammer can make a beautiful woman pretty unattractive.

Same here, mistyangel. The man that I am in love with is not dyslexic, but is a terrible typist and admits to being a bad speller. Since I was new to this site and was ready to start the process, I decided to answer his e-mail out of courtesy. I am glad that I answered and I am glad that I was patient. It took him a long time to reply when we chatted in yawhoo. Thank goodness he offered his phone number the next time that we chatted. What he could not express in IM, he said very well over the phone. Since then, we have fallen in love, made plans to relocate to be closer to one another, taken a vacation and have been extremely happy. We are 300 miles apart, but he is the first voice that I hear in the morning and the last one that I hear at night, thanks to free mobile-to-mobile service.

Having lived throughout the US, in Texas, Missouri, Kansas, Nevada, West Virginia, and New Jersey, I just thought I would make an observation. The examples given are not really a matter of grammer, but instead the issue seems to come from the environment the writer comes from or has chosen. In Texas, you are going to find people talking and writing with a distinctive southern twist, not just in their spoken (you can't say o r a l here?!?) diction, but also in their non-formal writings. In New Jersey, you will find a completely diferenct set of grammatical rules set by the local environment. Missouri also has it's own distinctive grammer, with particular attention paid to the pronunciation of Missouri (Missourah to natives). Nevada is a melting pot of the entire US, yet still has headlines about which politician pronounced Nevada "correctly," with locals preferring Nevadah.

The point I'm rambling on a bout is that some cultures within the US have their own grammer and spelling rules, and many liguists recognize them as more than just dialects, with formal rules to follow. Most of these same linguists will make a connection between the culture (or environment) of the grammer and it's conception and rules. So while it may not be proper english, it can be considered gramatically correct in it's context.

Since we have each choosen our lifestyle, and therefor the culture we wish to live in, making a decision as to who we wish to be with based upon grammer is not a bad thing. It can help you notice quickly if the other person leads a lifestyle you feel comfortable with.

69Vette, I couldn't help but notice the irony of your post as I believe the word you meant to use is "lose", not "loose". Just thought it was funny, no offense intended.

Alright, I'll admit it. I am the world's worst typist. Hopefully my profile has no mistakes, but when I chat or IM I am amazed that anybody can understand what I am saying. It's not that I can't spell, it's that my fingers won't listen to what I am telling them to do.

Correct grammar and spelling is something I'm very keen on, especially with my line of work. Not everyone has a great command of language, and I regularly teach people with dyslexia, and understand it, but I do agree with some posts regarding laziness. In the UK it appears some people can only write in 'text' language, and I feel they believe it's cool hip and trendy. Fine on the phone, but not in other areas.

Boring bit now... research in the UK a couple of years back showed that bad grammar and spelling was losing companies millions of pounds, and it's not down to educational level... senior managers were as guilty, and it got to the point that one company was having English lessons once a week for ALL levels of staff.

Bye for now!

It isn't a major turn off to me in informal settings such as the one that we have here. Doesn't even bother me in a profile either. Why? Because to me, grammatical and spelling errors do not necessarily express if the writer is sincere, kind, warm or has any other quality that I look for in a person that I want to get to know. I have noticed that these errors do not necessarily hinder the writer's ability to get his or her point across either.

I also don't get bent out of shape about such errors either because I am sure that many, and probably most, posts are spontaneous and written from the writer's first thought on the subject that he or she is responding to.

Just my too sents wurth.

lol half the time, i am cruizin thru the typing so quickly, i am not even paying attention, and I can't find the spell check on this forum, so, sorry people.

I speak correctly, if thats any consolation, but sometimes my typing can be erratic. Maybe we should cut people a little more slack. Its not so easy to read, I can accept that, but isn't it the thought behind the word, not the spelling of it, that ultimately counts?

I try really hard to spell correctly. It doesn't always work. My fingers can be faster than my brain at times. Maybe people could lighten up and let a few typos slide on occasion. You know what spelling is just not my thing. I have to think about it sometimes. Does the fact that someone has spelling issues discount everything else that they are. Well that is just sad. Lighten up.

People who cannot spell and who use bad punctuation are my numero uno pet hate.

Especially all this text "language" that is in wide usage these days.

Take their mobile phones away, lock them in school until 9pm at night and don't let them out until they can read and write proper English.
