Mods, please feel free to move this if it's in the wrong place... Does anyone else get really annoyed reading emails, text messages, and online discussions where the sender uses "internet slang?" I am getting so sick of seeing things like: ur, u, ure, etc. It would take me longer to figure out a "cute" way to say you than just to type it. It's 3 letters! Come on! How much time does it save to type 1 letter instead of 3? I'm all for cute little abbreviations - KWIM, IMO, etc., but I just don't understand shortening you, your, you're, etc. Sorry for the vent. I'm pretty anal about grammar and spelling - guess that's where it comes from. I have gotten to the point where I won't even respond to texts I get that aren't written in plain English.
