Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE my friends from India and the Philippines and elsewhere. I wouldn't be where I am today without some great people from these regions. I'm not suggesting we do this, it's purely intellectual curiosity. If anything this is a cry out to IMers who write in broken English to take more time getting your grammar right and learning more about Western culture (because the West is where you're marketing to) so the IMers from the West and the East can both make more $. It's just when I'm on these soc nets doing my thing, I CRINGE whenever I see the tons of broken English obvious spam out there. No subtly at all. This is the kind of spam marketing that users notice first, and it only speeds up the complaints and abuse flaggings. This in turn speeds up the process of the soc net trying to block the bot from working and then potential legal action and threats against the bot sellers. It takes the "honeymoon period" of a new bot and pretty soon the honeymoon is over, and the bot makers then have to start making the constant updates. So, this is a neutral post, but I'm just wondering how much longer do you think soc net bots would last, and how much less updates would be required, if you had to prove you're a fluent English writer before purchase (and yeah I know fluent and native English speakers can make terrible obvious spam too, don't get me wrong).
