    only in dire situations do i shorten my words. my phone doesn't send a second text message when i pass the 160 mark, so i first cut the apostrophes, then the commas, then if i still exceed that limit, i cut the word's spelling. i die a little everytime i send a text message...

    Qwerty Only

    I've never had texting before I got the iPhone and it has a QWERTY keyboard so I always type with proper grammer. I never learned the texting language or the IMing language and still do not.

    No Other Way

    I can't use "txt spk".  My mother sends me messages that I can barely decipher because she abbreviates everything and uses ridiculous spellings and puts numbers in there randomly to substitute for words... drives me quite nuts.

    Always.

    I generally text in complete sentences. I use commas, periods, semicolons, and apostrophes. I never use the accursed "txt spk." I would rather take five minutes to compose a text message than to send something saying "k u wnt 2 go l8r". 'Tis abhorrent.

    Foreign Language

    I use proper words when i text but not necessarily the grammar, primarily because i don't understand text speak and send a sarcastic message back asking them to speak properly. Perhaps it's because i'm tradtional and think a phone should be used for talking.

    And My Parents Don't

    To me, trying to read butchered English is just adding an extra layer of difficulty into the conversation. For me, text messages are meant to be short, and to the point; if I want a conversation, I'll call. So I use proper grammar whne texting, so as not to allow for any...

    Maintaining The Human Link
