Default Re: **Please NO Text Speak

I think that's a pretty good idea.

But, I think people should still use them if they want to, I just think they should use it in moderation, like idk, lol, g2g, ttyl, and OMG. Those words aren't too hard to understand and are fun to use.

The only text talk I use is LOL and OMG. Some times, I use BRB, but that's it. I hate text talk it's very tacky and hard to read. I just ignore posts that are like that normally.

I agree. Not saying that you cannot use text speak but if you say a sentence like...


lol. o i g2g! ( LOL. Oh, I have got to go. )

than that is very annoying. But if you say a sentence like this...

LOL. That is so funny. Oh, I g2g to school. Bye. ( LOL. That is so funny. Oh, I got to go to school. Bye. )

than that is fine.

Yeah it is hard to under stand. I think the "Laugh out load" one and "I don't know" and "be right back" and "got to go" ones aren't bad, but other ones are really counflusing. When I read BackFlip15's post, I had no idea what it meant with the exapel.

I gave you a rep! after school

Default Re: **Please NO Text Speak

I 100% agree.
It gets very very annoying when people talk like,
hey whts up? nm how bout u? idk, or rotflol that so funy, see u l8r.

Its aggravating and it gets on my nerves trying to real it.
Sometimes i dont even know what some the the letters stand for.
Like, I didnt know what lmbo stand for, and i soon figured out it stands for Laughing My But Off.
It just makes you look too lazy to actually type out the full word.
Its not cool, its lazy.

Thanks so much for posting this.

Here are some great examples for you.

"nm hbu? thx 4 askin" [Nothing much, how about you? Thanks for asking!]
"wut do u mean i dont understand" [What do you mean? I don't understand...]
"c how this culd get annoyin&&hard 2 read" [See how this could get annoying and hard to read]
"u r soo cool. ikr lol" [You are soo cool! I know right?? lol]

[Kevin::Forum Rules]
I agree some of those i couldn't understand so i had to read the english part.
Some thing that doesn't even look like a word that people use as slang: they spell with w/!I know some people on here type w/ instead of with every time they say with on here!
writing OMG or LOL or w/ is OK every once in a while not in every other post
PS.Rep to you!

I agree. Some people make it hard to read firstly. And also if you want to join the gifting process or just in general those are called "fluff" posts.
