Why can no-one on trip advisor spell?

Just checking out this site. I wonder why so few people can spell the name of their resort or simple words like "disappointed". If people can't even spell the local towns it seems fine by me to ignore their opinions. Eg: beautifull! Am I the only one offended by bad English?

Perhaps it is a reflection of where you are looking on the site? I have to confess that when I've used it recently I haven't found this to be the case, but perhaps those reporting on the sangria and sand type hotels might have a different ability in spelling, whereas the upmarket/business hotels have a different type of cusotmer? You can tell I'm in a snobbish mood this morning...

well quite, and anyway, should it be trip adviser?

Whoops! Mustn't post again when I've been drinking!

no, swedishmum, that's how the site spells itself, iyswim...!

It was a businessy hotel I was looking at - overlooks Mount Visoveus apparently! Just feeling a bit guilty as my ds is dyslexic, but he's always extra careful when emailing etc.
