Not trying to be the grammar police...

I have been really enjoying how active the groups I belong to have been lately.  I love reading people's rants, questions, brags, and frustrations.  However, it truly bugs me when ppl abv evrythng or worse yet they just go on and on and on and never bother to use any sort of punctuation or paragraphs and it is really hard 2 read esp when they du both and nvr bthr 2 check 4 mistkes. Or they write really small.  I guess I am just venting too, but like I said, I WANT to read what people have to say!

Does anyone else get frustrated?

Yea, I do too.  I always wonder if someone feels abandon but doesn't realize it's because no one can read the damn thing! LOL!

I can't stand bad grammar and bad punctuation. It seriously offends me. Perhaps I'm a little (a lot?) neurotic but at least I embrace it. :)

Yes I do. Sometimes I don't know what the abbreviations mean, and that is frustrating to.

Yes, they do.  I admit that I was one of the people that had to look up the insane number of abbreviations that are used here (LO, dh, ds, ...)  and there are STILL ones that I don't know!  Not too proud to admit it. :)

I don't like to abbreviate only words such as "can't", etc. I like to type out everything, I don't like the shortcuts.
