I see where you're coming from, but I do think that some people shorten things for fun, or to make it easier. There are also younger people on here who enjoy typing like that because they think it's fun! I always say to each his/her own, though I personally prefer using proper grammar Thanks for the suggestion!

I agree! I used to use text speak in other websites, but I stopped because in my essay I wrote bc instead of because! (Don't worry, I found the mistake!) But there are also text phrases I don't know, that people use ALL the time! Thank you for bringing this up!

Thank you for you input! It IS easier to use text speak, but practice of proper English should be encouraged also

I totally agree. Sometimes I can't understand what people are saying! What's funny is when I text I don't really use text talk for some unknown reason.

One time, while writing an essay, I found it hard to remember all of the grammar rules and I was really surprised. I usually have no trouble remembering them but lately I'd been overusing text speak. I'm glad you found the mistake in time!

Thank you for posting!

Yes, a lot of people don't know what some text abbreviations are. Thank you for your input!

Same here! I use it sometimes, but sometimes I don't. Once I got a text that said (something like this): hi u wnt 2 g2 mvies 2dy? It was a very short text, but the person who texted me didn't bother to write it all out

Me too! Spelling errors are okay, because only dictionaries spell right all the time
