    Please don't use text speak. Its very confusing and it really only takes a few more seconds for you to add in some more vowels.

    text language is annoying. It's just as easy to type proper words so people can actually understand what you're saying...i mean why type 'm8' when it only takes 2 secs longer to put an extra 'ate' on the end

    It's not easier - if I had to miss out random vowels and learn a whole new set of words my typing speed would be decreased by at least half.. it's only easier for people who type slowly because they haven't got as much to type... and it's also annoying to read due to the ambiguousness of things and the untidiness can be confusing, and I don't think there are that many people who are 'used' to it on here...

    Text language is annoying. Fair enough shortening a word or two. But not shortening every word you type.
