The way that people my age are writing these days reminds me of George Orwell's 1984 (with newspeak).
I hate it when I'm on instant messenger, and sum1 starts takin lik dis, ppl! I mean, give me a break. I know the person on the other end isn't so busy that they don't have time to type three extra letters! No one is that busy, in fact! Oh and by the way, "lol" is one of my least favorite, especially since most people don't even really laugh out loud when they write this.
I also don't like it when PeOPle TaLK liKe tHis... what the hell is that anyway? ... I can't even guess. I can see if you don't quite know all the capital letters and all the lower case letters, and you're writing on paper. But on a computer... when you..ugh, you get my point.
Hehe, sorry, I'm very passionate about my languages.
