If it's being used too much, it's not funny anymore.

And I think it's being used WAY too much.

no, it's annoying. People who mock people who use it are just as annoying

It always has and always will get on my nerves. Same with text-message speak. Why can't people use proper grammar anymore? No wonder there's so many retards about.

text messaging on phones doesn't help either.
"hi m8 ur glfrnd is sxy she is 2 tmng wth me sry"

anyway i think mocking it is funny, thats why i made the 'noobiest question' topic.

i think that 733T + stupidity = funny

I always type coherently, which is presumably only a good thing. I even write coherently in text messages, with grammar and everything. It's sad to know that's exceptional.

I pity the fool who set a 160 character limit per text message. (Unless you want to go into 2 messages of course)

People who use internet speak are just asking to be laughed at.

Phonespeak annoys me far more than leetspeak, as the second is mostly used insincerely.

Tigx0r: ditto. The more contracted the text message I get, the more elaborately verbose I get just to make a point.
I hate it so very much. My sister is one of those people who uses it online: it's just an excuse to spell poorly. She spells 'time' with a 'y.' That's not a contraction, it's bloody stupid.

1337's fine in small doses, since it's generally used jokingly. In fact I don't think I've seen anyone use it seriously for years.

Text speak doesn't bother me when I'm using my mobile phone, since it's difficult to type coherently when you have to press 7 four times just to get an S. But when people use it on forums and MSN it just pisses me off. You've got a whole fucking keyboard to type, yet you write "coz" instead of because and "u" instead of you! It's mostly chavs and "rude" boys who type like that. The fuckers.

Broomie: Doesn't your phone have that context speed-type dealie? Where you hit a number and it automatically determines which letter you mean? It's incredibly useful for not coming off like a dyslexic nine-year-old in todays high-speed world.

Radix - That feature is so useful, you can pummel out an SMS faster than using phonespeak.
