Thread number 3 for HokiePokie, lets hope this is not a failure. Anyways, I decided to make a thread about the way people misspell some things so easily, when they probably know they spelled it right. Or they're just too stupid to spell things so obvious. This also includes shortening of words that are only 2 letters difference. Why is this happening? I know a hell of a lot of you people can actually type somewhat decently, why not do it? Instead of looking like you're uneducated typing "liek dis". Like I just don't know what's wrong with typing an extra letter.

"This"(4 letters) should NOT be shortened to "dis" (3 letters), 1 letter difference I don't see the point in shortening it.

"You" (3 Letters) to "u"(1 letter) should not be happening either. Especially since they're ON THE SAME ROW!! (Or on my keyboards and the majority of keyboards) hell they're almost beside each other, except for little "i" is in the way. But that should make no difference at all.

"Cuz" and "Cause (when used as a shortening of because)" shouldn't really be happening either.. "Cause" is somewhat of an OK shortenting of "Because", I guess, but "cuz" is a no-no. It looks stupid "Cuz" "Cuz" "Cuz" >.< Ughh....

Typos are accepted occasionally, but you don't need to type like it's the end of the world. But fact is it's either people are making too many typos or they're just spelling poorly all the time. Either way it's NOT something that should be happening.

Also "They're" (They are) "Their" (group of people [possessive, I think?]) and "There" (place), none of these should be a substitute for another (why yes, I know this is grammar but..), it's just annoying when this stuff happens. I too make spelling errors sometimes, but it this stuff shouldn't be happening too many times.

And this is all I could think of before posting this thread.. Also Firefox has spell check (or at least mine does), so it can help out a lot :).

You are absolutely right. It's annoying for everyone, and people will think you're a real retard is you write like an 8-year-old. But since English isn't my native language, I'm having a hard time reading those awful typos. I'm not stupid, I know that 'u' means 'you', but with all these misspelled words combined, I really can't read it.
I don't even understand why it's allowed on Crunchyroll.

There really are people writing like this:
'iLuVsOcCuR: omg i wuz lyke tlkn 2 chris an he wuz lyk omg ur so hott
pRePgUrL: omgz u meen chris frm ur sci clas
iLuVsOcCuR: ya him hes so hott
pRePgUrL: omg ya tel me wat ahppnd tehn
iLuVsOcCuR: hes lyk do u wnat 2 go out w/ me
iLuVsOcCuR: i lyk dyd
iLuVsOcCuR: omgomgogmogm i kno rite
pRePgUrL: ogmogmogmoomg tahts amazng waht did u say
iLuVsOcCuR: ogmz i sed yes of cors!
pRePgUrL: lol lol lolzzz'


That's just stupid.


Anyway, since I didn't know where to post it, I posted my opinion here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=6763&pg=6#4185530

I really don't see why not, I mean shortening of WORDS is ok, but not really shortening of A word. "IDK" = I don't know, obviously this can used in messengers and stuff and even on boards, but "cuz" does NOT need to used as a shortening of "because".

agreed
phrases are different then words
it seems that people who do this may actually talk like that
"cuz i didnt want to" or "dis doesnt make sense"
just looks bad

I really don't care if people spell it wrong or not. (Shrug) Whatever, everyone is different. Some are just lazier is all. Especially if it’s a friend of mine. Why be proper? It’s only me. Sigh. We all have our own opinions.

…Yeah, that’s bothersome, but it -is- the internet and u ought expect it 4rm dis kind o’ plce cuz nbody is gnna care ‘nough to try nd make der post readble

Well, amoto quaeramus seria ludo. That is very annoying. The fact is, however, that mots of these kid’s cannot type properly. They simply scrutinize the keyboard, hovering a finger from each hand over the buttons, and then push the letter when they find it. So, that really can take a while. You have to search for every single letter, and if you ever do a letter count then you’d know how quickly these characters add up. So every second counts. Otherwise they’d be there for more than 15 seconds.

They can do that in a chatroom, mirc, whatever. Don't do that on the forums that's all.
