    * Funny text ad

    I was looking something up on urbandictionary.com, and came across this text ad:

    I sure want to sign up; after all, they're "not jsut another UK host"

    That's quite funny. I can't believe a company will jsut slap something up on their site, and not proof read it.

    Well, I think it is purposely. Three mistakes in one tiny, little ad?!?! Maybe it was a joke/prank/etc.

    Maybe they were standing on their head when they typed it.

    I think that's most likely the reason.

    I totaly agree with CybexHost.

    People who are younger have a harder time with spelling and punctuation when they are younger, although it might be that they are jsut illiterate or have not been about aound long enough to be familar with common usage of the english language!:

    or maybe they just have better advertising talent than you.. because guaranteed, out of the 500 host banners you see a day, you noticed that one-and it stood out. The point of advertising is for people to know you and your brand, and remember it.

    btw: i think this sortove falls under the.. either incredible smart or very stupid type o thing. my 10 cents
