Have you ever come across a beautifully written hub, and because you are intrigued, you go look at the author's profile only to find that the English used to describe themselves on their profile is really poor English? I don't mean just a bit of fun short hand, but really poor English. How is it then, that they are able to write a high quality hub? Or is it possible that they didn't actually write the hub? If they didn't write the hub, it makes me wonder where they got it from, and if it's really theirs.

What is correct grammar? I've had stuff rejected by Constant Content for 'grammar faults' that have been printed in the submitted form in the UK and Ireland.
Thanks for all the different viewpoints, Lisa - I didn't think of people paying somebody else to write their hubs for them - frankly because it doesn't seem worthwhile - might be a while before a hub earns what the hubber paid somebody to write it.
MickS, that's interesting. Maybe the grammar checker on Constant Content, is floored by the different way that we spell certain things in the UK/Ireland. Or the slightly different turn of phrase that we sometimes use? Sounds a bit silly if so.
That's possible too, I guess - thanks for the reply.
Thanks, Yvette - I too believe that hubbers should give as much attention to their profile as they do to their hubs.
Yes, I believe that they should care about their profiles. However, perhaps some get carried away with the immediacy of joinig up and just blurt a profile without thinking.
I think in most cases, poor profiles are written by people with raw talent that needs help. Therefore, after they join HP, they realize they need help and find someone to show them the way?
