Writer's Block: That's So Cliché

Which, ahem, "internets" clichés do you wish would go away already?

morons typing LiKe ThIs, it's not cute or funny it's annoying.
and I can't stand when people type like they can't spell on purpose. My cousins do this yes they are young but it annoys the crap out of me. Do they not understand that when you are online that your spelling is the way people get an impression of you and that just makes you look dumb.
Ok yes I use chatspeak on occasion but I do not go insane about it. I use u instead of you but I do not go out of my way to use it for EVERYTHING.

I guess with this kind of question it shows my age a tad. I am not the young hip crowd anymore huh. I should be a soccer mom by now or something

LOL. Netspeak is kind of fun, but admittedly, when something looks like it's completely in another language, that's annoying.

yea it can be. but if it's all the time and for every word. its annoying. I know I don't always capitalize stuff or whatever but i do try to use punctuation and stuff. I am sure I get annoying too but at least i can understand what I am typing to people.

Dude I'm with you. But it might be something to do with the fact that I was once a snobby lit major :)

aaah you were one of THOSE lol huh? I kid. Now with texting it's gotten way out of hand. I don't text so I don't use short versions of EVERY word.

Ya, me one o'those :D

I figure though that if I were to use shortened lingo there's no stopping where I'd use it, so it's best not to start in the first place, if that makes sense.

Plus, when I was younger my father used to tell me off for using Australian slang and the habit for the most part stuck.

Hi, I am 36 year old BBW from outside Chicago. I loooove makeup. I also love to tan, listen to music, watch movies, hang out, pretty much anything a normal person likes to do. (I have links to my different profiles listed below)

This used to just be my makeup journal, but I have since started using it more and more for everyday things. Face of the day's will still be done but not the ONLY thing posted here.
Any of my FOTD pics will be listed with FOTD tags.(so check the tags plz)

Icons I have made will have an icon tag as well as the movie or show I made them from.
I created my own icon journal for my icons but I will post links to them here. I have Friend locked some of my older Icon posts so all those icons that are locked can also be found at my icon journal.
