(Why do people leave such ambiguous titles to new topics? It's really annoying.)

Why do models describe any level, above that which they wish to work at, as "tacky"?

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Why do members have their profiles written in good coherent reasonably correct English, yet resort to semi=slang text speak when they post on the forums?

I suspect this may be one of those Threads where no actual answers are expected, but.............

In some examples of the above, English may not be the Member's first language so they may have some help when they actually sign up and fill in their details.
I recently received a Friend Request on another site from a Polish Model. I accepted and sent her a fairly brief message back. Then a couple of days later she replied:
"I am greeting and look to project soon".
So taking direction on a shoot may present a problem or two. Unless she swaps "chaperone" for "translator" of course.

That doesn't provide an excuse for those who are supposed to be able to speak English though.

Dave.

People online appear half way down the page or even on the second page when doing a recently logged on search emoticon

Before digital, photography consisted of only negative comments.
