    what is it with the people these days the purposely miss spell words? is it seriously cool to look like a total retard that can’t spell basic words that we use in our everyday life? is it really that hard to put an H at the end of with? I can understand miss spelling a word here and there, but Jesus Christ is it that hard to at least sound like you are a half way educated person? Sorry or the rant but it’s been driving me crazy lately and this post sent me over the edge

    Because people are proud of being fucking stupid. Simple as that.

    It really pisses me off when people use chat speak in real life, my friend uses jk, which is ok, I'll tolerate it, but everytime that commercial for that movie 'Its complicated' plays, when Alec Baldwin says 'O-M-G I thought he'd never leave' I just get the urge to punch a baby.

    ok this one i can talk to - i capitalize shit all day long, and it has to be perfect (i'm a writer at my day job). so when i'm in a forum or emailing or chatting, i don't use caps, and i like to unwind and goof off a little.

    the rest of you all are just lazy :D

    ps it's "sentence" ...

    I was just joking with him calling for proper spelling but completely overlooking his own laziness.

    There you go, I went and fixed all the spelling and grammar mistakes in your post...enjoy! :D

    On a serious note though, posts like that do bother me as well. If somebody's question is barely legible to the point where it's difficult to read, it makes me NOT want to help them...

    For me it's the same situation, but the result is the opposite. I have to write a lot of e-mails and I update blogs, so my writing has to be professional. For me though it carries over into other things, like Hondaswap. It bothers me if I DON'T keep everything that I write professional-sounding, even if it's for leisure...

    Thanks, I was about to do that.

    Do you find it ironic that he misspelled misspell in a thread about misspelling? Oh shit, you know what I smell? I made this shit btw:

    Who cares, its the internet. Sure its fun to make fun of others, but I'd chaulk it up to being lazy more than anything.

    people who talk in text need to die a fiery death.

    o-m-g, w-t-f, and l-o-l are not real words and should not be used in conversation.

    wat, kk, dat, and the like are mostly stupid teenagers, usually asian kids, that are just fucking retarded. stop typing like you are a fucking down syndrome baby that is chatting on aim.
