I'm here to send out a super-quick reminder. It'll just take a minute so sit down, relax, and read.
First, which one of these messages makes more sense?
1) omg!!!!! i luff dat sho 2!!! i watc it evri nite lol!!!!! ttyl grlie...
2) Oh, I absolutely love "Wife Swap". It's really good! Did you see it last week? See you later, Girlie!
Answer please... If you said you could read #2 better, good. That's what I hoped you were going to say. If you said you could read #1 better, wow. You're pretty good at 'Text-Speak', which is a good tool to use on the Internet. If you said you could read both #1 and #2, also very good. You under stand both plain English as well as 'Text-Speak'.
Well, what I'm trying to get across here is that as 'Text-Speak' may be fun & faster to use, it isn't always the best to use. Sometimes, going the extra mile and using proper grammar, & English can help you, Make more friends, & Be more helpful to everyone.
Thanks for stopping by!

I agree! I don't like it at all when people type like you did on the 1st one. I mean, that's okay for texting but here you should speak in full words and type everything out. It seems more formal when you type like in the 2nd one. I can understand them both but it's not really necessary to type in chat speak. I think some people do that because they are either too lazy to type it all or think it's "cool" to type like that.;; Rep coming your way!
I AGREE 200%. 99% of the time I can't even understand what they are saying. PLEASE if your going to post or make a Thread PLEASE use English so the rest of us know what you are saying. If you need help we can't understand you to help. Princesstoeshoe I am giving you a rep point. This is a very good point that you have made and I couldn't have said it any better. WOW this is my first rep point I'm giving.
I don't like it when people talk like that...even when I am talking to friends in IM or myspace.
Like I don't use perfect punctuation and grammar when talking to friends on the internet...but I do make it readable and I don't use abbreviations. Here I try to type Perfectly.. :]
I LOVE "Wife Swap" Too!
I Was just watching it.. :]
