Default Rewording of Introduction Question

Is it just me or does the following question bother anyone else every time you read an Introduction post?

"Are you self looking to start a computer business, already have one, working for someone else or something else?"

It just does not read right at all to me. Not sure what "Are you self looking to start a computer business" means. I suggest something similar to the following:

"Are you currently running a computers business, looking to start one, working for someone else, or something different?"

Thoughts?

I agree, "Are you self looking ..." is nonsense.

"Are you currently running a computers business, looking to start one, working for someone else, or something different?"
This is much better. But you could just read it literally and answer "Yes" without giving any information.

I suggest:
"Please describe whether you currently running your own computers business, looking to start your own business, or something else"

Agreed...incorrect grammar. Sounds like some butchered English attempted by a foreign spammer.

I have to agree. This should be changed to reflect that it was not written in India. If it was written by someone from India tech support I am very sorry.

Hello sir, let me introducing myself. I am Habeeb here to helping you fix pc your problem.

Oops, that was me. My mind was probably thinking "Are you self employed" and "Are self looking to start a computer business" at the same time and ended up writing some combination of the two. Fixed now. Thanks for that.

And I have a problem with this:
Quote:
What country do you live in?
Country is Ok if it's out-of-the-USA, but I would love to know, if you are located in the United States, just which State that you are in. Heck, for that matter, I'd love to know in what City you have your place of business.

So why is that?
I would like to get to know other techs in the area who are smart enough to be in this forum and possibly work with them as things get busy. Other techs may have a skill-set that we don't have and visa-versa that we can share. We just hired a tech who spent the last 13 years at Nortel as a Sr System Engineer / Security System Engineer /Project Manager. We have him learning Connectwise and he loves the program.
