Hip hip hooray! I'm very happy some one put this thread out there. Just a reminder, there is a spell check button in the reply area. It's a checkmark with ABC over the top. That also helps make sure that words are spelled correctly! (or should I say "typed" cause sometimes my fingers have a mind of their own!)

Happy posting!

I feel offended, even though I do speak proper English. Maybe people do that because they are in a hurry. I had no problem reading it, and I'm sure all of you could too. I don't mind it at all.

I did find it interesting for this topic to be brought up, but the sad truth of the matter is: you will never be able to get someone to change the way they speak (or type, rather) or modify their grammar in any way without some sort of major surgery involved. I'm sure everyone who types that way will continue to do it even if they read through every post on this thread and saw those who disagreed with it. I do wish that you could, though. I like to read intelligent posts to see what tantalizing idea the person has brought to my attention. Like this one:

Although I do disagree, Dixiecup. I totally miss the category you have set up. I almost never fall to using this "chat-speak," maybe with the exception of the occasional "LOL" for the fun of it. But most of the time I would think this is true. I'm just different (rebellious?) like that...

I agree with you 100%. People can put the time and effort into SPELLING out what they are trying to say. Thanks for bringing this up!

Although, I DO have to admit that I use the occasional "LOL", or "BRB"... But I hardly believe this is the same thing that you were talking about.

It doesn't really bother me when people speak chatspeak. For those of you who can't read it, I have made a guide to help you decode the words. Here's the link if ya wanna check it out:

Well, THANK YOU monkeecj!! I think that was a compliment and I would like to take it as such! I am not wont to pigeon-hole a specific group of people. I am glad to see that you are making your own mark in this world. This is what will 'cull' you from the common herd and set you apart from them. What it all boils down to, by your rebellion against the rebellion, you are saying, 'Before you follow the crowd, look at where it is going!' I think you have chosen a HIGH road.
