  • I don't know, but it's annoying as hell. Hard to understand them half the time and makes them sound uneducated. It's not short hand after all.

  • most of the time its easier. id much rather type IMO instead of in my opinion and SO instead of significant other. search a little through past posts in just for fun there are a few "what do the abbreviations mean?" posts, i even made one a while ago

  • I think it's because they want to. It's their preference to do so so they do it.

  • I don't text message anyone except for my hair dresser. I promise I don't use any "lingo" to message her, just to set up an appointment. Anyway, I use the same lingo that a lot of other people use on the internet. I don't do it to annoy others, I promise!
