Post Abbreviation Domination?

Hello everyone!

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...
or...
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!

XOXO,
~PrincessT.~

AMEN to that!

I agree 100%. We must understand that we have younger users on here, but sometimes...it gets a bit annoying when "ppl tkal l!ke dis lolllll lol rofl lol".

I normally avoid threads that have a huge use of chatspeak...hard to understand.

Thanks for pointing this out. :]]

I don't text (I know, I'm like a dinosaur), so it can be challenging to read members' posts when they use text-speak. It's a major turn-off sometimes, makes me not want to post.

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.

Agreed.
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.. :]
OH, AND,
I LOVE "Wife Swap" Too!
I Was just watching it.. :]
