Well, it is your choice how you want to type. It's nice when people type correctly, but there are people that LiKE TYPiNG LiKE THiS, and it's their choice.

I think it's important to remember that we have all different ages and abilities here. While something may be frustrating, it's not worth any angst.

Although 'their' and 'there' annoys me a little bit, I agree 100%...people saying 'mah' or 'meh' is a little weird!

i can agree slightly with the text talk thing, but as for grammer and spelling i dont really agree with you. There are alot of very young children here who might not even know how to use spellcheck yet or that have a disabilty. Also its probably just my opinion i dont feel that i need to spell perfect here on WI, this is a place that i feel relaxed at not somewhere i worry about my every word, nor do i have the time to do spell check constantly. Sometimes i can only get on to check my ge and respond to one person.

ok devils advocate here... there are people on this website that dont use english as a first language. sometimes they just dont know how to spell a word and they are doing the best that they can. yes spelling typos can be a pain in the bottm but if you get what they are saying then i say get over the spelling typos and continue on with your day. why waste time getting annoyed with typos.

i do understand not using "text speak" all the time. i have used plmk = "please let me know" when im trading or ppl = "people". how many times have YOU used "LOL"? in my opinion there are more important things to worry about than people using the wrong "there"...

anyway thats just my opinion

I agree! And the text talk counts as fluff posts and aren't 'allowed-ish' on WI.
