or as iChris put it “I sey u rite hm a email bout da Wii n da sam bs eng.”

Look, do what you want to get it down to 160 characters when you’re texting but outside of that…well don’t do this.


  1. I find it thoroughly disgusting that college students submit term papers to me with text message ‘language’ throughout.

  2. OMG I just realized – take out the punctuation and it’s as if Archie the cockroach wrote it! (Showing my age much?)

  3. More often than not, I simply stop reading when a diatribe begins with this vernacular. Poor grammar is another of my major gripes. Is it really that difficult to throw a comma or period in once in a while? I’m not buying the “I was typing on my iThingy” excuse; I wrote this on my Windows Phone 7. People are just lazy.

  4. Who the hell cares about the 160 char limit anyway? Which phone today doesn’t support extended text messages? Even my parents old phones support it..
