I'm alright with txt spk, if you're actually using a cell (mobile) phone. I'm also alright with a typo here or there, or even people not knowing how to spell a word.

But I hate it when someone wants to carry on a conversation with me in a chat room or messenger, using txt spk.

I've learned to ease up if I see the person txt spking to someone else, unless I'm in a mood. However, if it's done to me, I don't put up with it.

I'll either flat out ignore them, or read what they've said literally.

Like the whole "you" vs. "u"
"How r u?" generally gets a "I'm not sure how that letter is doing. That letter and I stopped talking about a year ago or so, we had a fight." response.

The shortening of already shortened words, it's painful to me.

I literally cried when I saw someone say to someone else "h r u?"

I'll let "u" slide on occasion. However, if a person writes out an entire paragraph with every word written out completely, except for "people" (ppl) and "you" (u) that drives me up the wall.

I know you're not stupid, prove to me that you're not stupid, or lazy and take the time to write the words out. Those short words.

I could go on and on and on and on about this but I'll just...

*end vent*
