I know that its easier to type with just the continents but that doesn't mean its correct grammar and spelling.

    It does make me wonder if text typing should be banned, I mean it must not be helping one pass an English exam on grammar and spelling.
    that is correct, ban that unreadable rubbish please.
    but you should think about putting a rule saying that text typing is not allowed.
    oh and you spelled consonants wrong.

    thank you, I think I might be dyslexic or something but oh well. I might mention it to staff members to see what their opinion is on the matter. But I would to see more members posting about this first, get a range of views first.

    Re: Lazy Typing

    I don't personally like to think, or add spelling to this thing. Because I can't spell. But I DO NOT use internet or text speak when I am typing to someone online. I leave it for the texting, and only then if I'm REALLY lazy or in a hurry. But generally speaking I type in whole words, whole sentences, and correct grammar. I can't stand it when people don't. It takes a whole three seconds to type the three more letters it takes to type the whole word for gods sakes. We as a society are far too in a hurry for our own good. But that's just my opinion.

    You never really loved me/You never really cared/It was all just a game to boost your ego/Those feelings never really there/ I'm filing emotional bankruptcy/My heart can take no more debt/Theres no more "money" there to spend. === Besides tee hee SHE loves me!

    Who cares? This is a forum not English class. I can type real words,but its just faster to cut words short. On the internet it doesn't matter especially if your chatting with a friend.

    Re: Lazy Typing

    Well as said in one of my classes [Which ironically is a typing class] it said that people make impressions of others through the way they type and sit. Although we can't actually see them sit *coughstalkerscough* if you type like crap it either means you're in a rush or you want people to get a bad impression of you. I'd say that people who are too lazy to correct their mistakes are kinda not too good. It doesn't take that long.

    Re: Lazy Typing

    I'm actually getting faster at typing. I used to just peck around. I use the keyboard & barely look down at the letters. I usually just type a whole word. I don't like to type things like this:ROTFLMAOAY(Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off at you). I whether write it out and I never use that one. I use lol & lmao the most.

    Re: Lazy Typing

    Normally for me I do not use short cuts for words. It aggravates me if I can not spell something it actually makes me grab a dictionary or look it up. I have to say that my husband is horrible at grammar and spelling. I'm constantly correcting him and I feel horrible for doing so. If I reply to something online and I copy their post to reply to it I will correct their mistakes. If I see something misplaced or misspelled on a website I normally go to the person who wrote it and let them know. I try to do it in pms so that way I don't feel like I'm pointing someone out.

    Yes grammar is a major part of society. If someone can't understand you then they might think you are talking about something else and it get all messed up. Typing to someone online is almost the same as talking to them in person. If they see you talking incorrectly and childish that is probably what they are going to think about you. Who you say you are online effects what people think of you personally. Say I started talking in baby talk...you would think that I'm a childish 18 year old that doesn't know the difference between a intelligent conversation and spam. I know you would not want to bring me into a conversation where you need an opinion on right? I don't think we should go as far as giving infractions as I have seen someone say. Maybe a warning. You also have to realize that some bosses go online and see what you do...I'm not sure how they do that yet but they do. In some cases it could be the difference between keeping a job/getting one or losing it/getting turned down. If you have a problem with grammar then get Fire Fox. From personal experience with using it. I can see a difference that it has made on my grammar. Just by it letting me know something is spelled wrong. So don't be so lazy in your typing take some time and put thought in it.

    You fail to understand that when you let yourself look ignorant, others will percieve you that way. At least that's my issue with lazy typing. I don't even waste my time with text-typists.
