Wow...you chose a 'nerve ending' issue, didn't you? I can tell you which age range each and every respondent falls into, just by what they have chosen to post.
I am fortunate enough to have seen a LOT of different age groups mould their own language. It is what DEFINES their generation. It can be their own secret code-type of language that dis-allows the 'rents and other people older than themselves.
It is a lot like the clothing they choose or the way they choose to decorate themselves. It is a definition of the day. In a few years it will shift, they will be the older ones and there will be younger ones trying hard to set their generations' style and place in history.
I, personally, don't mind them speaking in chat and text. They are young, energetic, smart and clever enough to build their own language. If it gets to be too much for you, you can always flag a moderator and move on to the next.
They largely ignore these diatribes and lectures, anyway.

I used to use numbers in place of words, like 2 for too or to and 4 for for and B for be, etc. but that was before we had computers in our houses. (we used to write notes on paper to eachother) I probably would have typed like that too though. Let me just say that learning to type was the best thing I ever did. It's like learning another very useful language. I don't even use abbreviations when I'm texting because I know where all the letters are.

Just as an addendum to my post, even Socrates (469 BC -399 BC) complained about youth of his time and the statement is no less true today.
Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for
authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in
place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room;
they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.

Thats it EXACTLY! I'm a kid myself and use mild text speak sometimes, but not like the example on the front page.

I never did understand that, but I think it's the people's decision to talk like that or not. Great thread!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi! In real life, I must say I am a stickler for grammar and spelling, but this is supposed to be fun. For that reason, even though it might be tough to read, I think chat speak is OK. What I can't tolerate is rudeness, though. I can't count the number of posts I've seen (especially when someone wants to trade) where no manners whatsoever are used. I get this a lot...

interested in blue lava

No "Hi", no "Please", no "Thanks". I guess THAT bothers me more than the chat speak. Just my opinion, though!
