    spelling

    ok, i must say that my spelling and grammer is not always perfect, and i don't see a problem with this, or with other people's speling being slightly off. however what is starting to annoy me slightly is the text talk and such, not only cos i find it confusing at times but because the people who do it could at least try to spell. an example of what i mean is:

    OMG u iz, da bst, wn cn we met?

    you know, stuff like that, i would put more but it does really confuse me, i don't have a mobile phone so there's no reason for me to text talk.

    Ah so you think we should regulate how people type am I assuming correctly? Make a rule.

    And I for one miss that rule *tears*. It's not really the spelling that bothers me, as long as the person has made a decent attempt and you know what the word is. But I've found most highschool kids now a days type in shorthand ebonics gangsta homie talk, and it's really getting old. I don't know where they learned to type like that, but it's destroying our written language. I can't even hold a decent MSN conversation with anyone much younger than me anymore because I can't read what they are typing.

    I agree totally, this talk pisses me off. It is indeed destroying our language, and at the same time making the ppl typing it look like morons.

    Re: spelling

    It annoys me when it's used way too much, because then I get frustrated translating it into real english.
