Text Message Speak - No More or we close the Site!

That's it - I've just seen m8 for mate for the 3rd time today. If it happens again then it's the off button and no more ARRSE. At least Blondebint uses english to communicate.

Can't you just do an outright ban for those tosspots that use it? It drives me bonkers! Note to the person's doing it. If your crap at English or spelling, then just open another window or MS Word, and look for and use a spell checker. Simple.

Got to agree, txt spk is a worse sin than mass genocide. All offenders should have there 'mobbies' inserted up their back sides still in the original box.

I use this polite little warning if it is found anywhere in the NAAFI;

Despite my last post, I do agree. My daughter sends me text messages, it takes me ages to work out what she is saying. BATCO, I was faster at that!

Complete and utter agreement, I have never been the most able with spelling and grammar; what with being dyslexic and having attended primary "school" in the 1980's. I do my best however, not to inflict my inadequacies (in this department) on others.

I've no objection to bad spelling and grammar as most of us get it wrong to a greater or lesser extent, and this isn't the English Nazi Rumour Service. Text speak is bloody irritating though.

"Nyaff"? God God no. Said urchin would be addressed as a 'radge' or at a push a 'radge cnut'.

Nyaff sounds really quaint in that context.

Even on phones, text-speak is rubbish, because almost everyone has predictive text these days. All decent words are short anyway - e.g. "beer", "pint", "sex", "birds", "Llanfairpwllgwyngychgogerychwrndrobollantisiliogogogoch" and so on. To be fair you could probably abbreviate the last one.

Chrz me ol mkrs :wink:

"Text-Speak" is the chosen language of the uneducated chav.

Enough said.
