    I don’t do it much personally, but it doesn’t bother me.

    I use some of the stuff that’s more bee-specific, like DH, FI, GM, SIL, etc. You’ve got to admit typing FFIL is a lot easier than future father-in-law

    i typically skip capitalization when using my ipad or bberry… but as for the text speak, i hate it too.  it makes me feel like i’m reading a post from a teenager, and i always think to myself ” why is this child getting married?” i realize that i cannot logically assess the posters age that way,  but its a gut reaction i cant avoid.

    Depends on what you are talking about. I don’t like when people just leave out letters because they are too lazy to use proper grammar. But i do use things like LOL, OMG, DH, FI, etc… I didn’t vote cause I’m not sure what exactly you are referring to!

    It’s taken me awhile to get used to them and I don’t use them all the time. To each their own.

    Can you give some examples of what you’re so bothered by?

    Fwiw, if you’re going to post a complaint you should probably make sure that your OP is damn near perfect. You can’t really criticize others posting habits when you don’t use proper punctuation or capitalization yourself. I realize you pointed that out in your OP but still. As much as you may be annoyed by abbreviations, others are equally as annoyed by poor grammar.

    Why are abbreviations more annoying than incorrect (or total lack of) punctuation and capitalization?

    I’m completely inconsistent about it – I don’t mind acronyms, like LOL or OMG, but I hate when people use text-spelling like u r gr8t.

    So I don’t really feel like I can judge others. But I still find it annoying!

    I get what u mean- but I teach middle school, so I’m use to it. It’s definitely something u have to get use to. That being said, I don’t think I’ve typed the word “you” in years, unless it was for work.

    I get more annoyed by lack of punctuation and capitalization on the ‘Bee. It especially annoys me when people post huge run-on sentences or don’t split their posts into proper paragraphs. I find them extremely hard to follow!

    I don’t mind things like DH or FFIL, but I hate text-speak like ‘u’, ‘r’, and numbers in the place of words/letters!

    I agree for the most part.  A friend on facebook does this to the point where I do not even know what she is saying. I think to myself… “Can anyone else figure that out? I can’t be the only one who has no idea what she is talking about.”
