do you think spelling is important?

example:

u = you



you still can understand

Yeah, I think spelling is important It makes it easier to read faster because you don't have to think all the time of what the frikin' guy is trying to communicate with you.

Honestly, it's annoying as it is should be. If they have the time to spell incorrectly, then I believe they have more time taking their time and type in a manner where other people won't have a problem with it. I understand the part when people will type in a short sentence and just make a short cut with one hand or something. But if that's how people type, I mean like this one:


i shuld m4k3 a h4b1t typn lyk3 dys n c if p30pl3z g3t 4nn0y3d


Then they should stay away from people who chose to differ and spend their time thinking how they can make an impact and socialize with people effectively.

But you need the right letters in there, or your mind won't read it right. I think it's important to know, but less important to use in personal communication.

What I said isn't pointless. You're supposed to think. Great, you have spelling down to a science. Now work on your grammar (I.E. Punctuation, capitolization etc.). Think next time you brain trust.


owned.

Depending on the format...in an academic paper...hell no. In a forum, well basically anything casual online, I don't see why it would matter.

Brevity is lovely online.

if I c u = I see you...I pick the former.

I totally read and understand what you are trying to prove. What I can't stand is not misspelled words but intentional typing or forms of the word.

Example: I like simple words like "what" to "wat" "you" to "u" "don't" to "dn't"
But what about these "I" to "ah" "like" to "lyke"
I can't stand how they try to write it in these form to sound like they have an accent or to help them look cool. There are more complicated words out there where they also intentional mis-spelled so that we think they have personality. Sometimes they say it is because they don't want to spell the whole thing cause it takes too much time but hell, how is "thang" different from "thing"?

I encourage short tech or abbreviations but when it comes to using things such as "HoW aRe yOu?" and etc. . .and what I gave as an example up there it totally blows my mind away because it doesn't make sense to me.

Grammar is not a big thing as long as I know what you are talking about but intentionally mis-spelling and using too much slang or L33t is just wrong because some people wouldn't understand what you are trying to say. Key to communication to writing or typing in a format that people will understand universally not just your group of friends because it is common courtesy in a Public Forum. If it is private, Who cares how you like to butcher your words or grammar.

I can't stand abbreviations, misspellings or obvious grammar errors.

Infact, I can't even take you seriously and seriously doubt that you're not mentally retarded if you can't put together a coherent sentence.

Thus, I hate if you say.... "I luv u". I have a real respect for the language and don't appreciate it when people butcher it.

My only exception is when you're ending a conversation, ie. ttyl, cya, brb, etc etc.

Learn to spell. It makes you look stupid and uneducated if you replace words with the letters that sound out the same to shorten it your word by a letter.

Although I'm going to be an English teacher... I didn't like to spell or use correct grammer.

My idea of a language is to enable people to communicate. If everyone understand wat it meant, then it is ok.

Yes, I think spelling is important. Internet slang is making some things way too easy and simple, I sometimes wonder if the world is regressing while at the same time progressing too, well grammar/spelling wise that is. The english language can become so butchered, that students even apply this manner of spelling and grammar onto a daily basis such as curricular writing. Can people really be this stupid? I just finished reading Common Sense by Thomas Paine and then I thought to myself "How can the foundations of proper english crumble in a matter of 200 years?" and then I read some things on the internet, then I think "wow this is some ridiculous shit".
Theres making acronyms for long winded phrases which is ok, but then theres this "abbreviated lets take out all the vowels vomitted up shit that makes you decipher line after line and makes your eyes bleed" spelling.

I may be exaggerating a lot there, but that does not detract my point in the fact that people actually become stupid after using the internet. But I guess thats kind of redundant. At any rate, I think I was getting of the point, but typing like that does make people more stupid and deprives them from actually formulating cohesive sentences, which actually helps a shitload much later in life.

That concept is a valid point in case, but then again I don't want to see the next president on the podium saying "lawlz, we r going to take diz cuntry to anther level, heheh bt not rght nao cus i gee to gee so i'll tee tee why ell ok? seeya"

Ok i exaggerated a bit too much there again but i guess you can get my point
