Nay. The person who decided that parents should have rights to ban their children from reading.

hmm...still math. No, the gene that decided I was going to suck at math. Yep. Now, I'm blaming a gene...I wonder if that's a step up from a bunch of dead people.

I see no point to do it online! You do not have a major reason to do it on the internet! I can understand for texts, where you have a certain quota not to fill, but on the internet, on an IM service or something?
Puh-leeze!
You've been taught by teachers since you were five how to speak and spell properly, and then you go and ruin it?!

Most of the time it's with me and my friends:

It was irritating. I don't understand why people write "meh" instead of me or my. That's one more letter to add. I can stand smiley faces like :] or and I can take it when people use lol or haha or teehee, except I don't understand the point of using ROFLOLMAO when you could just use lol.

I also don't get why they use text talk in emails. Couldn't you use the extra seconds or so to use proper spelling and grammar? I don't mind typos, Kazel here's the typo queen, and I get it when you don't know how to spell something. But seriously. I got an email from my friend like this:



Well. I could understand it, but it looked so sloppy.

Any opinions?










I hate text speak. I couldn't even understand most of it

I refuse to use text speak, mainly because it's going to kill the English language. So I never use it, EVER!!! It's ridiculously annoying. It makes me sad to think that in 500 years, the English language has gone from this: *Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Though art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May and summer's lease hath all too short a date.* To this: *WTF?!?!?!?! i h8 tat!!!!! shes suc a B&$@H!!!* It 's amazingly sad. What would Shakespear say about text speak? Our language is screwed up enough, it doesn't need to get worse.
