Why so much short hand (not meaning abbreviations DD, DH, SO...)???

I understand that sometimes (texting) it's easier to say things in short hand but when you are posting a question that you really need an answer too, wouldn't it be better to write it in a way that everyone can understand it?
I spend more time trying to figure out what the short hand means than getting someone an answer that might help.

  • I prefer to read the full word, too. Sometimes if there are enough of the text speak abbreviations, I close up the question and move on.
