Don't worry, there's a whole pond protecting you. ;)

And I also despise this way of writing, especially when I see Spanish written that way. It gives me the creeps.

I just get tired of the people that are members of FLAA, and those that use too many TLAs, even though sometimes I get the feeling I should join.

Did you say you hate when people do that, and then say that it's awesome? Kinda contradictory...

I hate when people talk like that. My brother does it all the time. It really gets on my nerves :@

Maybe some of you misunderstand, I'm ok with bad english. Take Coco for instance, doesn't know a lick of English, but quite a bit of engrish. :p For one, Coco uses periods, not clumping all the text into one run-on sentence. Coco does a good job keeping the text clean, but, as for my quote, it's quite ugly.

Please keep yourself presentable. i.e. small signitures, clean text & no flaming. :) Noone will bother trying to spend ten minutes trying to understand a fifty word run-on sentence.

Yeah, writing like that doesn't help your education either :p By the way, does any1 here know what 'ftw' means? I see it all over the place, but I can't figure out what it means. Not even google could help me.

And if you seriously don't know how to spell a word or you make a typo, that's perfectly fine. But we all know the concious use of "u" instead of "you" is just laziness. And why the hell do people use "wuz"?? It takes the exact same amount of time to type as "was"!

If I'm tapping it out, "wuz" takes even longer. "wuz" takes 33 units of time, while "was" takes 25 units.

I'm even more confused why people use the wrong word now.

Hahaha!! I actually use this to correct the spelling/pronunciation of some of my Japanese friends. Ever have one tell you they hate wasabi "caz" it hurts their nose? I gently attempt to correct their pronunciation. Forget L's and R's, the biggest difficulty my friends have is not having the ability to say "uh" instead of "ah". "I had staff to do today." It kills me when it creeps into their spelling...

*Then again, I still can't hear the little tsu.*:D

That's because you can't type.

agreed. Alternating hands almost always type faster, unless your hunting and pecking.

Actually, I am referencing Morse Code, the oldest form of digital communication.
A dit (.) is 1 unit, a dah (-) is 3, within a charecter, you put 1 unit between the elements, and 3 units between the letters, about 5 between words, and 7 between sentences.

WUZ = .-- ..- --..
WAS = .-- .- ...
