No, the rules state that we would like you all to NOT use text speak. We would like you to take the time and write your posts out in English.
We also would like you to NOT use blue and red ink as that is reserved for admins. I encourage you to re-read the forum rules and guidelines at this time.

Default Re: i have seen this alot on wi...

What is being pointed out it is not TXT lingo but ebonics which is it very different.

THIS IS EBONICS '' I hace20 cats. Man, it si hawt todat.. me bored

not TXT lingo

TXT is brb lol 2U

and I think that if one is using TXT in the proper way I say go for it bc it can save alot of time and it is good practice for College when you have to shorthand it

Besides the older people have been doing it for years just in their way and they are ussually now ****ed off bc they are not able to keep up with it

So I say IF TXT is used correctly it should be fine bc it is very simple to read

But Ebonics has not place anywhere.

One of my friends goes to a school that costs $15.000 per year for third grade and they have a required course in Txting.

I know that some Ivy league schools also have a similar course as one of my cousins has taken it. I will not put the name down bc if I do it might be taken down but it is a top school.

Besides when did you ever see a blog that doesn't use those TXT words, some of them can even be found in the Webster Dict. now. "I think that a few years back 30 of them when it"
Look it up for yourself.


The point is TXT is here to stay and even though you might not like it ....... You just have to adjust bc it will not go anywhere ever ........It is the 21th century adjustment to language.

Learn it before you can't even find where the milk is in the supermarket. lol

You have to know but you don't have to use it all the time.

Even Mods and Admins use "LOL." That's not really text speak, but rather general internet lingo. BRB, LOL, ROFL, TTYL, OMG, FYI, IMO, etc. are common across the internet, and have been in use for years. Acronyms are not text speak.

Text speak would be the goofy abbreviations that not everyone would understand - it would include the unnatural and improper shortening of words, replacing words or letters with numbers, etc.

"Hi guyz, wut r u up 2?" would be consider text speak.
"OMG i hav 2 get ready 2 leave 4 schl in like 2 minz. im gonna b l8 brb" - text speak.
"OMG. I have to get ready to leave for school in like 2 mins. I'm gonna be late! BRB." - acceptable.


Any kind of "AOL chatspeak" would be unacceptable as well. Example:
"dud3 my m0m s4yz 1 c4nt us3 w3bk1nz f0r 2 w33kz cuz 1 g0t a D 0n my h1st0ry t3st" - totally unacceptable.

Please take a moment to reread the forum rules, They're in a sticky at the top of the Rules & Suggestions forum. It's a post by Kevin that read "Forum Rules - Please read before posting.

You may also want to note that RED and BLUE are reserved for mod/admin use only. Members are not allowed to use those colors in the forums. Just a friendly heads up so you don't end up in trouble.

Hi folks. Just to clear this up - using text speak is something we would like you NOT to do here on WI. Some things like LOL or BRB are universally known and certainly fine, but much more than that is not OK. Many people do not text and do not understand that text speak, and if you're going to take the time to post and contribute to the forum, we ask that you do so in English so it can be read and understood by all.

I'd invite any of you who were unclear on this to re-read the forum rules and guidelines.
