  • I don't mind the standard abrv. or the cafemom short hand it is the made up short hand that make it hard to read/follow. I know I mistype words all the time so I proof read and use spell check. It is hard to answer a question if you are not sure what they are asking cuz of a typo.

  • Because the "short hand" on cafemom has been around the internet and internet chatrooms for YEARS! It harks back to the early 90s and AOL chat rooms.

  • Text talk is NOT the same as the internet/cm abbreviations. Huge difference.
