    Yea, I dont know how my english teacher put up with our class... She was one of those really really calm ladies who doesent burst under stress and she can always resolve problems. I really liked her (she was the best english teacher I have ever had[she is also the one who inspired me to express emotions in quotes]) but she left recently because of money issues. As she left she told me that I was her favorite student, I felt special. Anyway, Thats besides the fact... being an english teacher is pretty hard and I comend her on what an amazing job she did.

    yeah being an english teacher is hard. i had this one teacher that spoke english as a FOURTH language (thats right she spoke japanese (3 dialects), Chinese (2 dialecte), French, and then learned english!) she was really hard to understand when she was talking but she had such a great sense of humor that everyone loved her. i wonder what happened to her, i havent been in her class for four years. when i graduated she was working on learning russian, i think she wanted to become an international translator. anyway she was the one who got me into anime and manga so shes was the coolst teacher ever because she let us read comics for school credit!

    but yeah i agree that the language thing aint gonna change, my real gripe is the people who refuse to post in anything but l33t speak so theyre posts look like this:

    WTF are they saying with that??? (Yeah its cut and past from another forum so i gotta give credit to the orig posters: Blade, and hitokiri_hanyou_tintoyou from We-Love-Anime Forums )

    yeah so thats my pet peeve

    someone said something about spelling a word the wrong way on purpose, and HELL oops I mean hell, I couldn't agree more

    when I have to chat with some of my friends it's better to read what their meaning was instead of playing jeopardy

    i.e.: wush u doinz (that's actually not bad compared to)
    datz sho nut cool...

    but we aint DOIN' no essay here folks, stop being so uptight
    remember the law of inertia

    I don't think mispelling words is that big of a deal. The only thing that really ever bothers me, is when people start talking in baby talk. you know the standard

    "dat is kool yah" "Da ball went der"

    also too much 'chatspeak' gets on my nerves cause its so noobish. I will use terms like 'brb' 'afk' and 'lol' and ones that express an action or are just to shorten soemthing that you say atleast 100x times, but too much, is just too much!
