I've graded university papers where they didn't know the difference between "there, their, and they're" as well as "you're and your". It's so sad to see people who go to university and haven't figured it out yet.

In terms of doing it on purpose, I think it's idiotic and it's hard to take seriously. But it's their personal choice. I won't go stop them.

Wow..you just love to complain dont you? It's the fucking internet. Who gives a big doo-haa if somebody types like this: OMG! LYK! I LAWED! Or what ever. Sure it's hard to read and can became anorrying at times, but who cares! It's not like if they dont spell out a word right Hitler is going to come out of the grave and kill everybody. (lol....) But it's the internet. Deal with it.


I'll use your great "logic" here. I can complain whenever I fucking want to, it's the internet. Deal with it.

Spelling seems to annoy me.. I can handle a typo here and there, but the people who make no effort really tick me off...

Now, the people who do it on purpose, thinking it is 'cool' or some BS, need jump off a cliff >.<

I do it from time to time. So, I'm lazy. It'd be bad if I actually talked like that in real-life. Trust me, it could get a hell of a lot worse.

Well.. this kind of thing doesn't really bother me because as long as I can read it, I don't find it a problem.

Right. Typing in a somewhat indecent manner is one thing..

I have a bigger problem with swearing then misspelling

Music did have a good point. I highly doubt this thread is stopping any soon-to-be knocked up cheerleaders and wannabe mobsters from talking like the crap they are. So, what is the point in complaining? Just because you yell at them and insult them doesn't mean they'll quit it. Infact, they'll probably be too busy, mindlessly wasting away the day with their talk of pathetic boy bands, demi bras, and sexual intercourse to listen. Try to let it be and ignore them.

i only misspell things when i'm eating and have one hand. lol. i used to write like that in my newbie days! now, it's just easier to understand when you spell things correctly. i am guilty of not using apostrophes and commas ,though, i absolutely hate them!

oh biggest pet peeve. wHeN pPl kAnT tyP coReCTlY aN uSe sHiFt aLl dA tYmE. iT dRiVeSs mEeH kRaZi!

Some people are just too lazy to spell out the entire word. We shouldn't hate on them, perhaps... just not talk to them or read their posts haha. I type LOL or LMAO or LMFAO all the time. That's not bad is it? More than 75% of people probably type that at some point or other, but oh well... it's the internet!

I suppose it's similar to txt-speak. Personally I think all these are okay as long as it's in small increments and not 24/7.

Personally, when I'm reading through threads or posts on a chat, I ignore anything which I can't read easily. That's really how I've been dealing with short-cut text. For whatever reasons people decide to speak in a short-cut way is not of my concern and I am not obligated to read what they have to say. However, if someone is responding to something I said, I do expect them to reply in an appropriate and readable manner. I think that's the difference. Friends who understand and use that language are free to use it among themselves but in terms of responding to strangers (a good example is posting in a thread), I think appropriate text should be used as much as possible.
