Wikipedia FTW :P

Does it bother any of you when people use stuff such as "c u l8r"? "txt tlk"..

I don't mind stuff like "lol", "btw", "brb", and such, but that other text talk drives me insane ><

i think the talk like "1 r 1337" is retarded. i compare it to lil white kids using "black slang". but i do like shortened words like "u" "b4" "c" "o" and "l8er" (the last 1 is pushing it...)

Yeah, me too:

ROFLMAO: rolling on the floor, laughing my a** off.

AFAIK: As far as I know

IMHO: in my humble opinion

but there's a few I still don't know like

BBQ


A lot of the number letter gibberish is from the online gaming, where you want to send messages quickly. Probably important to the text-messenger folk too.

It drives me insane...
It's like the ultimate in bad grammar.
I don't mind "lol" or "brb" or "cya" or anything like that... Except when lol is used more than once in the same sentence or more than three times in the same paragraph.
But what I REALLY can't stand is people replacing letters or syllables with numbers... Replacing A with 4 or E with 3. Or in the case of syllables, "Great" spelled "Gr8".

I will tolerate it to save arguments but it really does get on my nerves...

BBQ means Barbeque by the way, Calandale. :)

Is that all? I'm not sure. But it may be a site-specific slang I'm looking at. Do people tend to add BBQ to other acronyms just for kicks?

Most of the time I don't even fell like answering people and then I think to myself when are they going to stop sending me messages. I killed the program a couple of times so that it would stop
