Lightbulb Language

No, this isn't a statement or question to ask or tell somebody that they should change the filter, this is a statement, or a rant, about 'IM speak'. I'm an avid role-player here (seeing as 98% of my posts were in the Theatre Company), and off and on I come across someone posting shortcuts to words, such as 'i' for 'I' and 'u' for 'you'. I mean, I know it's faster, but I think it's kind of.. embarrasing or even makes the person that typed it seem a little slow. I think if you're going to leave a post somewhere, whether it be an email or a forum (IM is fine, because that's not permanent), you should leave an impression that you know how to spell.

I'm not saying that people using that 'language' are stupid, or slow in any way.. I'm just stating that people that use it have no regard or even decency to type like everyone else. I'm not even going to get started on 'teh liek 2 kewl 2 typ'. >_>

Just don't respond to them. Eventually they'll go away if you don't answer their question. And by eventually I mean like 30 minutes.

Heh. Well, many people have AIM, MSN, and stuff like that. They have learned 2 tipe lik dis.

Unlearn what they have learned, they must.


Tell me what you regard as your greatest strength, so I will know how best to undermine you. Tell me of your greatest fear, so I will know which I must force you to face. Tell me what you cherish most, so I will know what to take from you. And tell me what you crave, so that I might deny you.
