No. Text speak is going to kill the English language. It's stupid. NO!

So? I have an old phone, the keys are tiny, but I write out full words and sentences. I even use punctuation. >.< Er...yeah....

Personally, I think text speak on KidPub and Writers Block is unnecessary and stupid. Period. But for IMing and texting i think is alright. As long as it's legible.
For example:
"Hey girl! How r u?" is alright. But: "Heh gurl HRUINTHH brothuh ROTFL LOL?!?!" is over the top.
Rosie and Silver are always pestering me because I sometimes use text speak while TEXTING! Sigh. But on the bright side, I can always read what they say.

Agreed. Well, I use smiles. And that's about it, but lately, I've been using OMHP. Rach can guess what that means.
Sorry Rach, but I hate it. It annoys me, and frankly, I don't understand half of it.
