I just can’t make this one any more bizarre. Maybe they’re hiring someone to write their social media help wanted posts.

    1. Gotta be. I feel bad for slamming someone who clearly is speaking English as a second language. BUT, they’re also clearly looking for people to help them spam the crap out of social networks.

    1. I don’t actually, but I do keep an eye on it. I have a development project I need help on and am trying to learn to get a good team.

  1. Hmm… I’d go along with the indignation, but that looks more like a typo than a spelling error — and I know a lot of very educated, very articulate people (great writers, even!) who have missed typos in documents and posts, either from distraction, overfamiliarity with the text (so you’re blind to errors) or autocorrect on an iPad, etc.
    It’s funny, but it doesn’t mean they’re stupid. And if they ARE stupid, all the more reason to hire someone who can spell. 🙂

  2. Ian,
    Thanks for making me laugh! How about bad grammar offshore seo guy:
    “I has like blogging, and always comment on other blogs to get links. I says things like, “your write good posts, I am book marketing this post for return.” These kinds comments get approval. SEO is really alot as surgery. I has got thousands of comment links with my softwares. PLease make business with me.
    I’m going to hire him next month do head up keyword research in 2012.
