People hate it when you don't use punctuation in your title too.

I think it is because we are old farts and find it hard to read grin.

Though admittedly, we all cope with cod, so could be <<RR looks around to check no-one is watching>>...<<whipsers>> snobbery!

Thank God it's not just me.......maybe I should start a new thread for this but AIBU by choosing people who spell and punctuate their emails correctly when responding to Freecycle ads that I've put on? Even if they're not first to reply? blush

It is hard to read and feels like you're talking to a twelve year old. Hate it in texts too can never understand them

I hate it. I also think it must be harder to write, but then I touch type so guess if you're typing with two fingers maybe not?

But am afraid to say that text speak doesn't make one come across as hugely inteligent/elequant. Imo anyway.
