The reason why people ask you to clear up the way you write is so that you can be understood. I don't mind you speaking in "slang" if we were talking face-to-face; but if you type in a way that makes it sound like the way you speak, then it's very easy to be misunderstood.

You don't want to be misunderstood, right?

I've never had that happen, because I use proper grammar, spelling, punctuation and all that jazz.

It might be because I'm an English major.

And I personally won't tell the person to change the way they write/type, but if it's too out of hand, it does tend to get annoying. Even though I can read it, it's like, come on now, put SOME effort in. It's not that hard. But to each his own.

The whole point of writing is to communicate. Now, if you type in slangs, internet lingos, and abbreviations, how do you expect people to directly understand what you're trying to say?

It gives me a headache trying to read what people type when they type like you (no offense). I hate reading sentences wRitTeN lYk ThiSsZ or when they use numbers to replace their to's and for's.

Isn't internet slang also suppopsed to make it more efficient to write things? Throwing in symbols and such would make the whole effort not worthwhile. And it's annoying when a native English speaker cannot correctly write things.

Indeed... "Camel Case" is a very annoying invention, and whoever thought it up should be castrated on the spot.

indeed that kind of typing annoys me so much
I used to type in text slang; "jus lyk dis" and when I read my old posts etc it really annoys me
I won't tell someone how to type but I like to be able to understand what their trying to say and it can be really frustrating :/

No one has ever told me to fix the way I write. Or type.
Posted 1/4/09 , edited 1/4/09
people usually make their first impression on the way you type on the internet. So if you use the wrong words, people will think you are an idiot. It doesnt matter if your the smartest person in the world, if you type like: iF i HaDz a HaMbUrGz Me WiLl EaT. I have no idea why people type like this, its very difficult to understand and you sound like a 5 year old.

I don't really have a huge problem with it, but it just kind of irks me. People would respect your opinions and ideas more if you took the time to type them out correctly.

Of course, this is the internet, and shortness and convenience are key, so perhaps your style of writing is actually appropriate.
