3. No Netspeak. This means we do not tolerate condensed use of shorthand or abbreviated prose in the style of SMS text messages "wot r u doin m8?" or "1337 sp34k" leet speak. If you are educated enough to use the internet then your ability to write correct English must reflect this.

Why even use "4rm?" When you say it aloud it's the word "form" not "from."
There's no easier way to say "from." lol. /rant

I used to short-hand type notes for billing purposes...always drove me nuts when I had to switch from short-hand to regular English for e-mails within the company.

BACK ON TOPIC, welcome new person from London. I'm not from London but there are plenty of cheeky monkeys on here from all over the UK. Please have a badger bisquit, that's how they got me to stay...oooo and some pink lemonade.

No no no. Why do people like this present such a foul impression of London?

Is it just me or is txtspk more prevalent amongst the English, particularly Londoners? I don't hear anywhere near as many Americans use it.

I blame the Chav invasion. Particularly from Essex.

no text speak is very annoying, i for one take longer to read it than if they had just typed the word normally.

Are you 2 harsh on people who use txtspeak legitimately, such as in SMS messages (which has a characters limit)?

Depends. I try to use proper English wherever possible in texts, but sometimes I appreciate that there is a limit, and if I need to keep it down to fit in my message, I can't expect someone else to do any different. I AM harsh on people who send texts like:

"Ok, kool, c u l8er" and that's all the text is. How hard would it be to do that properly, and why on EARTH spell cool with a "k"? Txtspk for laziness is bad, txtspk out of necessity can be recognised as a legitimate form of shorthand.

no not at all as thats what its for as messages cant be very long, but in other situations why not just write normally?
