I hate text speak too. I can understand it, but it just looks so bad.
When has @ replaced the word 'at'? When did it become okay to post something like: "This Celebrity @ Whatever Movie Premiere/Awards Show"?
Did I miss the board meeting?
Seriously? Is it that difficult to type two letters?
I agree! I think that my old brain can't get with it. It doesn't work well with run on sentences, no punctuation, no spacing or capitalization. It just hurts so I just have to move past it.
Agree... I don't bother reading that stuff either... it makes me feel that the person behind it is incapable of using proper english language and thus not worth my time reading!!
LOL, I don't either.
I'm with you on that point, Brother!
It's like listening to someone read an entire page of a book without taking a single breath.
No offense to anyone doing it, but I swear it makes your IQ look 50 points lower, too.
....hence, that dunce cap visualization........
Only 50 points?
I was in a generous mood. :devil:
I fnd it v annoying 2 rd posts wrtn in txtspeak. Probs dun wnt to overmod, bt why not ask ppl nt to post txt style?
This discussion has come up in other parts of the board a few times. For the most part, I just don't reply to those that do it regularly.
Maybe if no one replied to them?
Yeah, I probably wouldn't bother replying to this kind of chat. It's so off-putting!
I thought we already had that in the rules but I was wrong, went to check and didn't see it. I must have seen it somewhere else.
^^ Wishful thinking?
