    Why is spelling and grammar so atrocious on Bubblews?

    This might be a bit off topic, but what is up with the grammar on Bubblews? To be fair I didn't really look all that much, but every post I read was just horrific. Am I right? Or am I missing something?

    I'm not familiar with Bubblews but if it is anything like HP with an international reach it's possible a lot of folks simply do not use English as their primary language which makes them prone to make errors in spelling and phrases.
    In other instances sometimes people are typing fast and (filling in "the blanks" with words in their head the do not get typed on their screen.
    I've been guilty of not only doing that but of even proof reading and still filling in the missing word. It's only after I step away a day or two and read it again that I find I left out words. smile

      I know exactly what you mean, and I agree, but it's way more rampant in the bubblews community.

    A majority of users are from the Philippines, atrocious grammar and non stellar posts are pretty common.

    Is anyone actually still writing for Bubblews?

    A very small number of writers on Bubblews are native English speakers who also write well. Everyone else seems to be using the site either to practice their English, or to scrape content and run it through a translating tool, which is why many posts there are unreadable.

      lisavollrath, You make an excellent point regarding people using (translating tools). Very rarely do they provide a completely accurate translation from one language to another or at least not in the way the natives utilize the language.
