Here's one from last week...So she is asking if her water is feeling well ? Maybe it caught the flue!

She can't read it clearly states I don't reply to messages and I also have an English version of the ad on the same page...


Do you speak English?
I am wondering what could be wrong with my water since I have no water pressure..... my water supply is well?

Sounds like she is saying her water supply is a well. She forgot the letter A.


I think people are ridiculous for texting you but there are many companies advertising they accept texts.


You need to respond with the same text message to every one or text back no one. If they think there's a person on the other end they'll never stop.

I think it's asinine the US doesn't have an official language. If those immigrants can walk thousands of miles and jump borders they can learn some english. We should be allowed to refuse service to non-citizens who don't speak english.

I have no problem what language you want to speak to keep your history going, but if you come to a country , you better learn their language ..period..if you travel from the USA to other countries and dont speak their language your schit out of luck, most countries learn English because they want Americans to spend money there, even if they dont like you...

I reply to no one as that place is where people think they'll get the 20$ deal. Even 20$ might be considered too much. It's also the place where all the pirates put up ads.
