What is your opinion of Internet Shorthand?
Posted 10/13/08
So what do you guys and gals think of Internet Shorthand? Personally I think it is annoying. I can understand cell phone shorthand since some companies charge by the letter. But honestly, is it that much more difficult to type 'you' instead of 'u?' I'm not sure how the hell it became fashionable.

Now to be clear, Internet Abbreviations (IMHO, TYVM, ROFL, etc.) are not on trial here. I'm mainly talking about the really lazy stuff (u for you, ur for your/you're, 2 for to/too) aka Internet Shorthand.

I don't really like it, but I won't bother anyone if they insist on using it.

Don't really care, as long as they understand what I'm saying.

I don't take you very seriously if you do type in shorthand. I just usually use shorthand when I am insulting someone or being sarcastic.
