I sorta agree... I chat like that but I put my punctuation! Btw.. Lol sorta like that!!! I mean, By the way, I like Freddie Mercury, from Queen, right? The way he dressed was kinda... awkward but he was a pretty good singer all he had to do was fix his teeth he looked like a buck-toothed guy! LoL! Sorry I can't help it chatting like that!

I totally agree. I do understand if there are young kids who can't spell every single word, but I it does get annoying when people start using symbols and weird abbreviations when they're posting. It's OK to say, LOL, BRB, BTW, and SRY sometimes, but try not to do it all the time. I always say LOL though. =D

Thank you. I figured that, but for some reason my mind fancied the appearance of it outside the quotation marks, contrary to the correct form, and confusing me to wondering which was the right way and which wasn't.

I really don't mind chat speak. It makes life a little easier. But not to be rude or anything, I don't think people really use numbers here on WI. So i don't think it is that much of a problem. Things like u, r, lol & btw arn't really big deals to me...But that's just my opinion!
Thanx for trying to make WI a better place!

I think that the reason that people do that is because they want to make their posts shorter, they think tha it is actually eisier to read! But in the example that you gave they must have spent alot of time writing. Isn't it annoying writing all those numbers??

Well it personally doesn't annoy me. Just when people misspell like crazy, like this, "waht is your faveorit movie mine is ffinding nemo. i like it becuase..." that bothers me. I do'nt mind if it's like "yo ppl wazzup lol" but if they use numbers for letters that kind of confuses me. other than that it's fine by me.

Haha, that's not chat speak, it's AOL speak.

But I agree, it is annoying. I haven't seen it much though. I'm guessing it's a bigger problem in the Open Mike and Role Playing/Polling sections.. and I tend to avoid those.

I get really annoyed by that, too, but I have a really bad habit. I use smileys a lot . I also use "lol" or "LOL" a lot. Other than that, chatspeak annoys me.
