  • Whenever I come across anything written like that, back buttton!

    Takes way too much time and energy to decipher it, and at the end I can't take it seriously! To misspell something or an abbreviation but o that drives me crazy!

  • No it doesn't bother me. I do it some times it's just quicker to type that way. If you have a problem with it I suggest just not responding to those post.

  • Nope, doesn't bother me not one bit. I say, find positive ways to deal with things that irk you b/c most of the time, you can't change it. Good luck!

    For example, I can kinda appreciate when ppl write like that b/c it reaches the point quicker lol

  • It doesn't bother me exactly, but I don't spend a lot of time trying to figure out what they mean, if I don't get it right away I ignore. I think that writing like that does hinder communication.

  • I like to actually spell out my words but I rarely bother with punctuation. Unfortunately when i read those kinds of posts I get this image of a very uneducated individual or a 15 year old. I know I shouldn't think that way but it's the first thought that comes to mind

  • It only bothers me if I can't understand what the hell they are saying.
