It's not that bad, yeah, but then it starts to irritate me more and more when it's really repetitive.

I don't mind it. i use it a lot. like when i'm on AIM or texting my friends. thats why its called TEXT talk. because for me it just takes way too long to text in full, proper sentences. like here's an example of one of my...not so interesting texts cuz why would i let you read an interesting one?

text talk: Ya shes such a b**** do u even want to rly KNOW wat she did to me last yr??

normal talk: Yeah, she's such a b****. Do you even want to really KNOW what she did to me last year??

and see which ones faster to type? I wonder. so really, text talk isnt useless or anything. on sites like this, yeah, it totally is, but otherwise, no...it's not. emails, IMs, and text with text talk is perfectly fine...i dont get whats so bad about it.

yeah, that's what I meant, when it's used outside of texting.

Well, I think you guys are over-reacting to this matter. Yeah, you can think it's annoying but "PEOPLE WHO USE TEXT TALK MUST DIE"? That's kinda mean.

I also hate when people don't capitilize (sp?) the words at the beginning of a sentence. Or their name. Or I. Also, when they make the same mistake over and over, even when the correct way to spell it is right in front of their face.
And not so much a vat of flaming oil, more like getting ripped apart by wild animals.

DE, that wasn't a pointed comment at you necessarily. It just bothers me.
