So, I'm bored. And talking on msn. About my crappy life. When realization dawns : I have no idea what my friend wrote in response to my question of: "I haven't seen you in forever!!" It looks something like this: jfeilqu9070873857efjuosugiuknvmnmqhjtefdr=) XD +.+koiegho.

Ok, maybe not. "lolz, dk, mayb go 2 da Mo-V 2mrw aftr skewl? U gme? hwz 4? L mt u @ da thetr." After extensive research I realize he's asking me if I want to see a movie.

And so another thought enters my mind which is the inspiration for this topic. "WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE??"

Because even I am guilty of using chat speak (or at least a more comprehend-able albeit equally terrifying version of it). Why? Is it lazyness? Inevitability? WHAT DO YOU THINK? And most importantly, is it necessarily bad?

I have points I can bring forth, but first I'd like to see YOUR idea. Yes. You. The person who's going to read this and decide "Meh. Np, ez tpk, but 2 brng 4 meh 2 tnk bout." DO respond. You can even use chat speak, if you like, though I'll end up spending 40 minuets trying to decipher it...

As for everyone else...I'm sorry if this is a boring topic. But respond anyways? Perhaps out of pity? I'm bored. At this point, I'm even considering taking a pair of scissors to my hair and chopping it off. And, I LOVE my hair.

It does seem like the English language is devolving as technology evolves. I honestly can't say that it is a good thing. People are just getting lazy and don't want to write the words out.
