coolawesomeAbby we think the LOL is fine it's all the other stuff we can't understand. I think most of us know what LOL is. It's the gr8 pnt. I ht abrvtn. that we don't understand. There are a lot of adults (like me) who don't know that Language. I guess you can call us old people. LOL

I think some of the problems that I have and maybe others are in basic translation of text speech.

Mainly because it is a form of speach that can been translated in so many ways. It is almost like a puzzle..is pnt: pint?, punt, point, or peanut...sorry I know some are cheesy, but I am just trying to make the point and help some realize that it can become especially difficult to figure out what others are saying when the larger portion of the 'sentence' is all text speech.

And I too skip past these posts and/or threads if it is lacking in the english language depatment. I could care less if people spell perfectly or if their punctuation isn't right. Most of time mine isn't great on alot of levels.

I feel like the queen of....(<dots) the majority of the time, but at least what I am posting is still understandable to all readers.

And I think that is the point here. That everyone of all ages should and wants to be able to really read everyones viewpoint.

I don't think it is an age thing. I think it is a technology thing. I do text type alot! But I save that for instant messaging and texting on my phone. I try not to use it here other then LOL. By know, I think everyone knows this one. I did read one of my posts one time and it said BTW (by the way) oops. This is a hard habbit to break. Plus I am not the best speller either.

My mom HATES when I text type to her so I understand the frustration with other people that have a hard time understanding it. But I am not that young and I do it alot. You sould see some of the conversations between my soon to be teenage daughter and I on our phones. But that is on our phones. We both know what the lingo means. I do it with others on my phone too. I do not do it to people that can't understand it. I type it all out to them. It takes longer, but then I know that they understand everything that I am saying.

I think typing everything out on here is great. That is what we all should be doing. There is such a great mix of people on here. Not everyone knows the text lingo. I wouldn't want anyone chased away from a good post just because they can't understand it. This is frustrating to someone that don't understand. I just pretend that I am typing to my wonderful mother. (PS. She is a member on here.)

Thanks! You didn't offend me. I just wanted everyone to understand that it is not age. I don't want someone that don't understand it to be stereotyped and called old because they don't know the lingo. I have young friends and family that don't understand it.

I am all over the web and constantly texting on my phone. I was kinda forced into learning it. I was not that good in the beginning.

TTYL, huh? Oh Talk To You Later. Or it could be written Tlk 2 u L8r. There is no actual strick language to use with text type. That makes it so much harder to understand.

I respect people that don't understand it. The young and the old.
