On here it is silly, but I do remember when texting(well at least MY phones texting) was limited to like 50 characters per text and they charged per text(no plans available yet) so you had to get a full thought out as simply as possible .

I don't mind acronyms, though I try not to go overboard with them and there are some things I spell phonetically to be cute (like mmmkay, dunno etc..) but for the most part it irks me.

I get it with texting, and Twitter, and sometimes even here if you're mobile. But if you have a full freaking keyboard at your disposal, there's just no excuse.
