    OK, I'm trying to post an ad but it won't get accepted because of spelling and/or grammar errors.

    Can someone please tell me what's wrong with this sentence:


    Who do you support for President? Click here to vote for Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, or John McCain and win $100.

    :confused:

    I don't see any grammar errors. They must be blind or they must be the ones with grammar problems whomever they are.

    its the names. Names wont always go into forms as correct spelling. Try putting quote marks around the names. That works some places.

    OK I'll give it a try. I think the error might be with the punctuation and the "and win $100" part. I think there might need to be a comma before the "and"?

    If you want to be really picky take the comma out before the "or". Thats all I would change. Never put a comma before an "and".

    Now they are telling me the text and/or image of this ad does not accurately represent the offer being advertised.

    How annoying!

    Needhelp is correct, lose the comma before the "or". Also, try it without using their first names and see if that helps.
