Boy do I hate "net slang"

God this makes me ever so pissed when people talk like this on purpose.

"Hi h0w r U?"

And all the others like it.

Examples

bi = bye
u = you
r = are
ure = your\you're
ur = your\you're

..and the countless others.


This kind of stuff is fun when your joking but when people use it all the fucking time it gets annoying as hell.

Anybody agree?

Sometimes it is ok, when they use r instead of are, just to type faster

but in a normal coversation using stuff like j00, is just not cool.

I totally and completely agree. For one thing, it makes the people who use it look like complete illiterate twinks, (Preppies, populars, whatever. I call 'em twinks.) And for another thing, to spell the word 'you' so that it looks coherent, it takes two keystrokes. A 'y' and an 'o.' How much time does it take, approximately, to make yourself not look like a retard? Hmm... About .02 seconds, if you're quick at typing like me.

Granted, not everyone is great at typing. Still, when was the last time you ever read some reply/IM riddled with all of the 'net slang' and actually respected what that person had to say? Did you ever really find them intelligent? Most likely not.

Myself, I can't stand it. I wouldn't point fingers and say who does/did it, but I am saying I can't stand it. Makes me mad.

Seems all the people whom I have met who use it on a continual basis seem to be:

a) twinks
b) idiots
c) people who like to think they are cool by using some 'kool' slang.

Please, feel free to gag me with a fucking spoon.

And On that day, the Lords of the land said unto their Master Architect, "The temple you have made to the gods of Wasabi and Maki has brought us no great prosperity" and they sent out him into the lands.

As he traveled to a far off land, he found he wasn't traveling alone, but that he had gained companions, and when they found their new land, they started work on a new temple, one that would be OPEN to all who wanted to worship.

from The Book of Wasabi C 12 Vs 09 (pg 2003)

Can I get an amen to that? It actually takes me more time to sit and think about slang than it does to simply type something out the right way in the first place.

in chat servers where people hate you typing for four minutes it's alright. forums, i only like lol, lmao, any other um, what they called? never mind. in talking with someone, saying "u fux0red tht up" would probably get you beaten. and i don't think, "hey,can i shex0r u?" is the best way to go about telling someone that you like them.

I generally dont use "r", "u", and such unless I'm typing with one hand, which is usually because I'm holding the keyboard of my other PC, or am on the phone. I also use "yus" and "teh" in chats. Dunno why, I just like them.

I generally correct my spelling to as good as i can without a dictionary (have the Merriam-Webster Unabridged Dictionary installed), and I usually dont bother with many grammar errors, such as capitalizatiobn of first letters of a sentence, or apostrophes in "that's", "they're" and some others, but i DO use it when i feel it would easly be confused with another word or meaning, such as "its" and It's"....

I really hate it also. The only one I really use is "lol" and sometimes "brb". It really doesn't take long to type "you" or "are". I don't know why, but the one I hate the most is "wut" or "wuteva". Those just piss me off.

Use "ur" and "2nite" towards the end of texts when I can no longer be arsed hammering out all the letters. That's it. Short texts and anything I write on the computer I write normally.
