    Is it just me, but I hate it when people us letters for words, use text abbreviations, and symbols of words.

    I know lots of people text each other and that's fine in it's place, but when I start to read a post and these odd letters start appearing, I just do not both to read them as it can take me ages to work out what they are saying.

    What is wrong with spelling a word. I suffer with word blindness, (yes I know there is another word for it but I have know idea how to start spelling it) I know sometimes I get it wrong but at least I try. It's not always easy looking up a word in a dictionary if you have know idea how something is spelt.

    wht u on bt? lol!

    Sorry I couldn't resist! My young cousins send me e-mails full of 'text talk' and it takes me ages to figure out what they are on about! I do use some abbreviations when I'm texting a message but not to my Mum who was texting lol to everyone at the end of messages thinking it meant lots of love - bless!

    i hate it too, in fact i rarely use it even in a text cause i have a proper keypad on my iphone with predictive spelling etc i think it`s just laziness mainly but then again it doesn`t take much longer to type out the actual word
