I found this in my scrapbook last night:

Atul: i really imprreesed abt ur first line.( about me in ur profile)
i like smart people like u.
wlii u become my smart fried ?

Waitng for ur reply till, i will not proceed for joining with others.

take care, bye.

Honestly, I have no idea of what about a third of that even means

For reference, here is my crotchety "About Me" blurb:

about me: If you're 25, and you write like you're 7, I'm not going to friend you. Please don't bother.

I wanted to see if he was taking it as a challenge, so I went to his profile. He didn't have an age down, but his job decription is "legal advisor for a pharma company", and he has firm beliefs about relationships (Have fun parsing this: "In real love u want d other persons good, in romantic love u want d other person."), so I'm guessing he must at least be in his mid-twenties. I want my scrapbook to have a "Denied" button.

Edit: I'm not trying to poke fun at the ESL crowd. I know many wonderful asians with less than perfect English who are nevertheless perfectly understandable. However, it seems like the majority of guys on Orkut that ping me are either phenomenally bad at English or just not trying.
