Rep if I can give you any! Great thread! I'm okay with,"OMG,that is SO cool!" but It's annoying to see something like "OMG,tht is so k%l!" Or how people know how to use proper grammar but they type like this "I is be at the mall 2day." Once again,great thread!
I see exactly what you're saying! I'm not here to point out mistakes in your posts. But it does get annoying when people are like "HELLOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!" and like "I'm a Sk8tr Grl." Please, take time to write in English! Whenever I point out a friends grammar mistake, they're always like "I don't care. Whatev." I love to type. I want to be one of those people who types a lot of stories when I'm older. I've actually started a new book!
I agree! Things like brb or gtg are okay to use, I do that when I'm in a rush and have to tell my friends "I'll be back in a couple hours" so I'd say, "Gtg be back in a couple hours". But to say "gtg b bck n a cuple hrs" is kinda hard to read and annoying. We all make mistakes, though.
This is taken from the rules in the stickied thread in this section of the forum.
* Using 'Text Speak' in your posts Please take the time to write replies in English.
It is in the rules...I can understand people not feeling the need for proper punctuation, but I fing the 'text speak' frustrating to deal with.
Tj03 is indeed right, text speak is against the Rules that you all agreed to, when you joined WI.
Good grammar and good spelling (within your abilities and age group) are a sign of respect towards your reader. That said, we must remember that everyone makes mistakes, typos happen, and one must be tolerant.
After you type, before you click "post reply", please re-read your entry to make sure that it is legible.
I'm going to close this thread now since both sides of the question have been well-covered.
