I Acknowledge The Growing Trend But...

frankly it makes me feel old crying   I do think it's cool to see the evolution of language in this form but I'm conflicted on the issue of whether it's a positive or negative development..  Aside from the obvious downward spiral of writing skills is this any more harmful than shorthand?  And let's  face it; this generation can fly across a key pad faster than many of us 30 somethings can dial a phone.  The skillset being formed through texting is unique and will be interesting to watch form.  It's still annoying, though.
