Your writing habits and hates!

How do you prefer to read when others write/type? Do you like text typing where it is all like this:

I ws goin 2 my m8s

Or prefer the normal and more formal?

I was going to my mates.

Do you think the way you type/write reflects you as a person at all?

I personally hate it and think it is very annoying. Especially when mixed with some pale, unreadable font colour :laughssss: How about you?

I like typing in full.. And it annoys me when people type all short and text like really, sometimes I find it hard to understand.. And I do think it can effect how you think of the person from the way they type.. But sure whatever people like I guess..

I can't stand text talk. It annoys the hell out of me. I say 'lol', 'Roll on Floor Laughing', 'omg' and 'lmao' but I don't shorten words or add extra letters like 'yhoo'.

I think it's because I type very fast, so don't need to shorten what I'm typing, but I don't know..

I don't like it. Especially when people put things like lyfe. Like what you couldn't just put life considering it was the same amount of letters? I just think it makes people seem less educated or dumb to me. No offence but it is does. Like instead of then, its den. Just sounds stupid and not needed.

I only use chat-speak when it's meant to be funny... Or mocking.
So I don't use it regularly.

I'll do something like:
"Lyke, OMG, that was soooo cuuuuute!!! I just wanna take it home!"
"**ROFLMAO**"
"imo..."
"btw..."
"STFU" [I don't use this much]
"WTF?"
"OMGWTFBBQ-SAUCE?!" [I love this one, it's too funny!]

And a few others.

I just do it when i'm in a funny mood though.
However I don't really do it other-wise.
And I don't type in chat-speak all the time -- that's just annoying.

Now, I use slang and what-not because that's the language I grew up around.
"Fuckin'" "Doin'", anything like that.
Yeah, I don't add the g... Because that's just how I would say what I'm typing.
I talk like that - and I want others to grasp my tone and wording sometimes.

And I use random words too -- blame my friends for that corruption.

That's about it though.









You Got the Motherfucking Right to Remain Violent!

Oh No Here Comes the Riot - Does Everything Have to Resort to Violence?
I Thought I Told You to Keep Fucking Quiet, Don't Even Try to Take This Weapon From Me
I've Come Undone - My, What Have I Done? Fuck it Let's Kill Everyone

No lights flashing,
No songs to sing along the way. ♥
