Default Lk stp txtspek: Like, stop text speak.

Hy, I mde ths thred bcuz lk ppl R alwys tlkig lk ths an it rrly anoy me.
Sorry, I mean: Hey, I made this thread because like people are always talking like this and it really annoys me.

I can understand like 'lol' and 'rofl' but when people talk like this:
"hi"
"hi, wat s ^"
"nthin"
"lol"
"hw r u?"
"im gud"
"i g2g, l8tr"

wat,^,nthin,hw, r, u,l8tr. They all annoy me. Why can't you just write the whole word? If you did, people could understand you better. If you did, the conversation would have been:
"Hi"
"Hi, what's up?"
"Nothing"
"LOL"
"How are you?"
"I'm good"
"I got to go, later"

I also used punctuation, and capitalization. I think this would make it easier for everybody to understand you, and lower the confusion.

Yup, agreed, defitently! I can live with "LOL" and "ROFL" but not text speak.

I agree, it gets hard to read and plain annoying at times.

Default Re: Lk stp txtspek: Like, stop text speak.

You know, they JUST did a recent study on the Canadian Police coming out of Depot. (that is in Regina Saskatchewan where all of the RCMP get their training from.)
There are an ALARMING number of these new police officers who file their incident reports in 'txtspk.'
The problem with this is that when it comes time for them to take the people involved in the commission of a crime, they have NO clue what the document reads and CRUCIAL evidence can be misunderstood because of using chat/txt.
Did you know that
OMG actually stands for Outlaw Motorcycle Gang??

These reports have to be filed so that months and sometimes years down the road the Lawyers and judges KNOW what has been said and done. If there is nothing but ambiguous text speak...the wrong person could go free on a technicality.
Just a little something to think about

I agree, Penny. I really don't like when this happens. I think LOL and a few others are okay, but not most of them

(just kidding)

I do use text speak frequently, but I have only done it once or twice on here. I try my best to keep it off of WI. I think there is a rule somewhere outlawing this, so if you see it, it would just be best to flag it.

* Using 'Text Speak' in your posts Please take the time to write replies in English.
* Posting entirely in capital letters Please do not post the subject or content of your posts entirely in capital letters. It scares us.
