Text speak isn't bad, I dislike the over use of it but when I'm texting or IMing it's kind of a given. I like to be able to reply fast. but when people use it accesively I have to be like, "okay what could those letters possibly stand for....."

Kiwara: Is it getting hot where u live? I'm burning up in my upstiars computer room. TT^TT

Well, this is sorta what starts KP fights with newbies. It can be very annoying, but it IS useful for quick replies.

I also use it when I want to portray a certain voice. I use this kind of pouty voice with my friends where when I'm talking when I say me it'll sound like meh. So when I'm IMing I say meh.

Text talk is good if you want to reply quickly. It's good so long as you don't overuse it baiscally.

Yep. Like saying: Srry, GTG! Isn't tooooooo bad, because you don't have much time to say anything else. But if you just go on and on and use it all the time, then it's annoying.

I only use "Text Speak" because it's quicker and easier and the keys of my phone are tiny, so it works better.
