wording of adult ad creative – deliberately includes grammatical errors and spelling mistakes

You would think “adult” ads would be on sites that were already p0rny in nature, so the audience distinction doesn’t make sense; everyone there is already looking at adult content. The ads are appropriately in context to the content. If the ads were not on such sites (i.e., publisher suicide), they would likely get everyone’s attention anyway — the wrong kind — for being out of place, perhaps offensive.

I’m inclined to think that’s an urban myth, or an adult ad writer’s excuse for being a crappy writer. Let’s admit, it’s usually not words that such ads are employing for success. I’m guessing animated gifs are the norm.

Wait, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, WordPress… lol.

Possibly. I’m talking anecdotally, in the main. Which reminds me of this (somewhat NSFW) article:

Totally. My theory (it’s a guess): A lot of the poor grammar on many site’s postings (adult or otherwise) is coming from posting on smart phones. Fat fingering and the annoying auto complete feature.
