textspeak...

OK... I use some "netspeak" like OMG or LOL u instead of you
BUT i am rather annoyed at people who type "dat" instead of THAT.
a friend of mine is typing cool as "cul" i want to rip my fucking hair out.
It annoys me so much that i don't even want to talk to him.
I am sure people hate how i type sometimes but i do generally type out a whole word. You don't have to decipher something like it's a fucking code when i am typing to you.

text speak annoys me too(to me it's muuuuuuuch worse than netspeak or internet shorthands). to me it makes you look stupid. is it so hard to type out what instead of wat?
I may be old school but honestly if you can't type and this is how i am only communicating with you it makes you look like you are an idiot. First impressions are huge to me and CHATTING here online would be my only impression of you.
Someone who has gone thru school and is intelligent should be able to type the word what or that. I can understand if someone misspells something that's different but if you are doing it on purpose it just makes you look lazy.
I just can't believe there is a generation of people who prefer to look stupid by typing things incorrectly.

I am sorry to those on my friendslist who do this but i have been talking to him for a bit today so far and i seriously want to send him a copy of my spell checker.

ok i had to get that out

Girl, I totally agree with you. The computer/texting/internet have made a lot of the next generation really lackadaisical when it comes to writing in general.

I use netspeak as well, but mostly for fun, not serious. My texts I usually make in complete sentences and grammatically correct, with proper punctuation.

When you post in a public place, how you write reflects who you are. Needless to say, many reflections are not very encouraging or bright.

At least I am not the only one here. I mean I know I don't always capitalize stuff but i do try to use punctuation.
But this guy I am talking about... is older than me.
He SHOULD know better. And it annoys me so much that I find myself avoiding conversations with him.

Oh wow, older?

Gosh, I don't blame you. Think it would get to a point where you would call him out for it?

the only real convention i break is lack of capitalisation as i've done here but i generally don't abbreviate or use the typical text or online shortcuts.

and yes, it's just laziness, my habit.
