    Doesn't that stuff annoy you: Thanx!, U, R, UR, sux?

    I can't stand it when people come to me talking like that or how they do it in forums..

    I must admit that I am a culprit for using abreviations like u, r, cul8r, tlk2ul8r, etc. I only use them when I am chatting to someone I have chatted to for a while.

    I never use them when it comes to business or someone from SitePoint or other forums that I don't know/chat to.

    The reason I use them is for speed and the fact that I use SMS (Text Messaging) a lot, which only alows 168 characters maximum. I also play Counter Strike quite a bit (Well I did before I got snowed under with work and SP) and when talking to clan members it helps if you can chat quick (Else you have a tendancy to die) and get the meaning accros.

    Yeah, it's annoying, but I've come to live with it since most of my friends type like that 'cause they think it's cool or something. Or maybe they're slackers and don't feel like typing out the full word Haha, I don't know...

    I use those 'abbrevations' as a way to speed up typing (IRC, UT, TFC, HL etc.) 'coz like Karl says, you'll die earlier when you take too much time typing a mssg

    BTW we are all using this kind of abbrevations: DW, FP, Win9x, Win2k, SSI, PHP, ASP. And at Anandtech Forums: PSU, CPU, PC1xx, DDR, cel.550@700 etc.

    It speeds things up

    Well, sometimes it makes things more difficult, especially when people use numbers instead of words.

    m8, l8r, tlk2yl8r etc.

    I dont like when people use it, but I do type 'dont' instead of 'don't' (or any other contractoin) and I type dunno instead of dont know.
