Also, there are younger members on this site so if older members type well then we can serve as a role model.

I don't like when people use incorrect grammar.

Yikes, and here I have been overusing LOL! It is the only text speak that I actually use and know (unless, you include "IDK, my bff Rose!"). It is harder for me to use textspeak than actually typing out words (I am so old school that I actually took typing in high school back in the days of typewriters and whiteout.. What were computers!!) Good rule so that the older people on the board aren't completely lost!!

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.
Yes, indeed. I type fast and and you don't see me writing wrong.

Bless you! I'm a proofreader and sometimes posts I see on the Internet make me twitch so bad! It's one thing to see a post by a child who doesn't have a good grasp on spelling and grammar/punctuation, but when a poster who is an obvious adult can't even bother to use periods or commas... that's just laziness. And the children will never learn proper grammar if they never see it!

I mean, I am not complaining, but just make it readable. For example, I can't read this:
OMG LOL dud culd i kum 2 ur hous tunite i mean we culd lik watch frankunsten and all dose uder scari moves and stuf
But, this is ok
LOL OMG!!! Dude could I come to ur house 2 night so we could watch frankenstein and all those other scary movies 2?

Not all are from typing too fast. A lot that I see are listed items in GEs, where there is no need to type fast. Phonetic spelling is what I see the most. That is where you spell something exactly the way it sounds. Or -eggzaklee da way it sowns. I have left GEs because the spelling was so bad, I didn't feel like translating it.

I know! I hate when people don't capitalize the word, I. Use commas! It makes it easier to read! Read your posts before you post them! Is it really that hard, people?

LOL if you could only see me reading that first post--it is so true, it is actually harder to read when someone types like that, and it usually takes me twice as long--my boyfriend was just watching me like I was a crazy person, because as I was reading the first post, I was squinting and concentrating on the words as I slowly sounded each one out...he just stared- he probably thought the wireless internet connection finally liquefied my brain
