it's just it's faster to type it misspelled...or you just spell it wrong for aome reason...for example i write I like i on the computer. i also write cool like kool on the computer

^How is it faster to type 'cool' like 'kool'? Don't they have the same amount of letters, unless you're referring to the closeness of k,o, and l are on the keyboard. I don't think it's much of a lazy behavior in my opinion, it's more of a trend similar to the 'slang' that's developed in most people in there talking.

Well sometimes I shorten words online, but usually I write it fully. Especially b/c the majority of a lot of people these days use chat rooms and some use text-speak, so mispellings occur more if they the person tends to use more txt-speak. Sure one mistake is okay, but a whole bunch is not that good of an impression. It's best to take spelling tests or use a spell-checker.

I can understand 'text talk' on an IM system or via Text Message, because you're trying to have a speedy conversation or you have a limited amount of space for words.

However, on places like this (forums) and other sites where the messages or posts aren't instant, I don't really see why anyone should shorten their words. Literature is important and using it incorrectly, especially in an intellectual environment, kind of makes you looks incompetent in some respects.

It annoys me that most internet users type "liek dis" and I sometimes correct them. But honestly, it`s none of our business so why even bother? It`s their problem. Besides, "disz" will only be used here or in love notes. I think most users here wouldn`t type like that in the real world. Since majority of the users are still students, they would need to write essays with proper English, unless they want to fail of course.
Let them be. If they want to appear as uneducated, it`s THEIR problem. Don`t like it? Don`t read it.
Oh what? Don`t have the power to control your eyes? Just scroll down and read something else then. Gosh, leave the "shortcutters" alone.

so its the internet. its not like we are going to get marked down points for spelling things incorrectly or using bad grammer. you just need to chill and stop being stingy. most are lazy teens trying to get through words w/o the hassle of fully and correctly writing it out. esp. on txt messages. god, typing it out fully is like... a drag...

the thing that makes me kind of annoyed is when people put their actions while writing online.
*sigh* im so sad
*tear* im crying.
*yells* im angry.
*hugs*

I usually only shorten words while texting my friends on my phone. Saves me a lot of time since I'm really slow at it

It takes more brainpower for me to type lik dis.

Seriously, its not that hard people. Will all the essay writing practice you should be able to put together a decent coherent sentence that is spelled correctly.

Remember, bad habits leads to stupidity. Stupidity leads to drug and alcohol. Drug and alcohol leads to death.

So Typ lik dis if you wanna die.

kthx
