    I thought i would see what you guys think because I really don't like it when I see a thread like the made up one below.

    Title:"wat ur fav psp gm"

    "wat is ur fav psp gm mine is wow bcz wow isn't out 4 t psp"


    I would think this is fine if we were like chatting but since a forum is public and permanent I think we should at least take the time to write sentences at least or at least full words. It takes me longer like 3 times to read a sentence like that because the person is too lazy or rushed to write a full sentence. I just wanted to see what you guys thought.

    God no....lets keep the conversation nice so it looks like everyone has an IQ that is over room temperature.

    August 2006 - DS homebrewed

    Embrace diversity.....play both handhelds the way they weren't meant to be played!

    quite frankly I've never even seen anyone type this retarded. The occasional "wat" or "ur" is acceptable in my opinion but you cross the line when you say gm. WTF is that supposed to mean general manager?? At least make it to where you can pronounce it.

    because it is hard to read and if you have enough time to post you should have enough time too write in full words.

    Seriously what does gm mean.

    as i said, its ok selectivly. ur, yw, np, lol, etc. common abbreviations for phrases, but when someone only types in sms text, it gets annoying

    Well I still stand by what I said previously and that is at least make it to where we can pronounce. I mean I don't even know what yw stands for. I say just don't do it if you have the time to spell the word out.

    ommiting one to two letters out of certain words does not save time to the extent that it is justified.

    Anyone that posts a reply full of that crap in my section is going to get a hefty edit.

    Dude your missing one thing its not legible, when you type like that you are forcibly making us try to discern each word one by one. Why, its just a waste of time? Just talk here as if you were talking to your teacher/professor in school.

    l33t speak is just @|\||\|0`|1|\|9 (annoying) it died off 3 days after it was invented

    someone who comes to mind for this discussion is darklord or whatever? who made the threads for "wutz ur fav gme?" and all that... It does get ANNOYING... especially when its like "action, sports, or racing" i mean there are so many genres also...
