It is kinda funny. I spell things my way at times and joke around but if we were all in school and being graded on the grammar we use on the forums I bet we all would be able to understand each other

I agree, typing fast doesn't mean you have to be lazy and start using chat speak.
It's really annoying for people to have to try and figure out what you have to say.
EX : "u" the actual word only has two more letters. So why not use them ?
But I also have to say, words like "brb" or "gtg" is fine with me as long as it doesn't get to far.

Well the truth is when I'm typing I accidently press the wrong key so I miss spell words.

And I'm like, how can ganz sew buildabear?

OK, I totally would have laughed if I had seen that.

Can someone explain how to spellcheck. And I apologize for not using capitals sometimes. I don't type that fast and sometimes I forget.

Gosh, don't worry about being perfect!!! I have a million typos in my posts, and use commas where they don't belong----it's just the way it is when we are typing so fast; I can't believe the way some of my posts come out! UGH!

Anyway: There is a a little ABC icon in the upper right hand corner of the little window in which we post: that's the spell check.

Is your brother happier? Is your mom calmer?

It is very hard to read and its frankly quite obnoxious!
This is just my opinion...
But, I despise when people use shortcuts like u or ur or 4 instead of for. Would it really kill you to write you, your and for? I totally understand in the gift exchange. I am guilty of saying GE for gift exchange, POTM for pet of the month, and LMK for let me know! It also annoys me when people don't use apostrophes in don't and can't also posting lolz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Again, this is just my opinion...I prefer my posts to start with capital letters and have punctuation at the ends! And i'm not a teacher or anything. I still go to middle school!

There is a spell check button? I don't see it!

I dont think spelling is a matter. There are people of many ages on this site, and some younger ones may not know how to spell correctly. Some people dont have spell ckeck. So please dont judge people by their spelling.

Shortcuts when typing are ancient ... much older than when the NOW generation invented text speak. Believe me ... shorthand has been around longer. It is fine, proper, quick and efficient. As long as it is not so over-used as it is non-intelligible. So if you have to brb before you lol as you j/k then it is nbd imho.

Just do and say what you need to do and say ... whomever needs to understand will indeed understand.

Wow! This is such a great post! I love it! Seriously thank you for finally pointing this out.

The reason I did that was to show that acronyms that are nonsensical/impossible to figure out are annoying too.

If you do your best to use moderately good grammar, spell things correctly and refrain from over-abbreviating, you will get along just fine here.
It's the people who talk this way who get on my very last nerve:
hi im intersted in ur lava atv midevil lamp have gorila psi plmk

Sheeeesh...would it KILL you to use a period once in a while? Commas, anyone???
When you write like that, you put forth an image of yourself as someone who either
1. doesn't know how to write properly
or
2. doesn't care enough about his or her readers to take the time to make the post legible to them.
I'd rather take the few extra seconds it takes to write well, and have everyone think I know what the heck I'm doing ....ha!
