    His reply:

    ok for one being a good musition has nothing to do with grammer or what not.

    What you think when you run acroos these ads? Worth writing back, email the corrected version, or move on to the next ad?

    Seems like the musition that posted the ad just doesn't have a very good grasp of the english language. Maybe it's Klaus Meine of The Scorpions. :)

  6. I think people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones!:D

    Obviously yours is just a typo not intentionally bad grammar.

    Misspelling shows me they have no attention to detail, or ya, english could be their second or even third language. Or they could be 6 y/o. It's hard enough communicating with bandmates as it is, do you really need a language barrier?

  15. I don't care about spell check as long as I can cash check....

    But I get your point, I look at an ad and think they are not very professional, not likely to be worth my time to bother with.

    I prefer working with guys with day jobs, former semi-pro/full time musicians that still want to play once in a while.

    Not because their grammar is better... they know the ropes, have played enough they're seasoned... Grammar is just a side effect of living in the business world.

    befor eye cudint spel stoodint, now i ar won.....

    I find myself really wanting to respond to those types of Craigslist ads with the suggestion of using spell check, but I usually end up just biting my tongue, and moving on.
     
  18. I would not respond to an ad like that. It makes the person look like a moron. Just my opinion, of course.
     
  19. Grammar is definitely lacking. Especially with things like run-on sentences, lack of paragraphs and tons of this... .. . .. ........ .. ....

    I'm guilty of that last one XD
