txt spk - a short rant



I've just read a post in one the sections where the poster seemed convinced That The Correct Way To Type Was Using Caps At The Beginning Of Every Single Word...

... and it reminded me how much I hate it when people are incapable of typing properly, ESPECIALLY IF THEY'RE ASKING FOR ADVICE NICELY AND HAVE THE CAPS KEY STUCK ON AS IF THEY'RE SHOUTING.

So I then thought about txt spk n thght tht it rly fckd me f hw sum dckhds cant spl 4 sht n sm 2 use thr putr sif it ws a fckng mob.

I mean, how hard can it be? Surely, if you've mastered an Internet connection you have the ability to type as though you're a human being, and not some complete feckwit who thinks that the whole world understands and encourages lazy spelling. I sometimes wonder what they'd sound like if you managed to speak to them in person... which makes me laugh, actually.

It is because I'm just bloody English and a grumpy old bastard (with an education, thank you)? Am I alone? Tell me I'm not alone. Please. Someone.

Re: txt spk - a short rant

I agree wholeheartedly. Too many people use stupid, un-readable language on these forums. A little bit of correct spelling and grammar can't be that hard? Surely?

Re: txt spk - a short rant

Your not alone. I dont care to much about mis spelt words or average grammer, thats part of Forum life. Its when people actually choose to type in txt form that drives me nuts. I hate it in SMS messages and I hate it on the forums.

Re: txt spk - a short rant

Sometimes If I Type Fully In Capitals, Like I Am Doing Now, The Forum Automatically Takes Them Out Appart From The First Letter For Some Reason.. Maybe Thats Why Mate ?
