How many people find themselves wanting to say 'LOL' in real life though?
I nearly did the other day. That was scary.
Back on topic tho, all my emails, text messages and other stuff are usually proper English. I sometimes abbreviate if I really need to, like if I'm typing with only one hand in a rush.
People who cannot spell and don't have a good excuse like dyslexia are evil. Everyone makes mistakes now and then, or has a few words they don't know - but some people are just completely rubbish.
Like one guy I know, he spells 'exactly' as 'assactly' or 'azactly'. He's not dyslexic, he's just completely ignorant. I used to laugh, until I realised he wasn't kidding. Now I just get a quiet chill.
Radix: Do you mean the dictionary option when making text messages? I rarely use it as most of the time I want to write something I get weird words like razzle when I really want to say something different.
Text speak I can deal with when it's on mobile phones, I rarely use it though, I used to do it on my first phone (a brick more like) because it had a character limit. And I also considered myself abit of a chav back then. (Thank God I came to terms a few months later) It could only process 100 characters, so I pretty much had no choice to type "lke dis" when dealing with long messages. My current phone can stand 1000 characters, meaning that I hardly ever use text speak anymore.
w00t I belive is basically like saying Woo! Correct me if you want, since I'm just guessing that. It's all a bunch of shitty nonsense anyway. Nerds thinking they are funny, sickens me.
Dines, I also said Laugh Out Loud once by accident, I felt like a fucking loser.
I tend to type kinda like how I speak, but unless I'm talking to mates on MSN or something I try to cut down on the Yorkshire dialect.
If I typed something like "Allreyt everyone, I've got summat to tell thee all," people would be like "what the fuck's that guy on about?!?"
