    There's no real material to that article. For someone with a major in English i would expect more substance. I think I, a 15 year old, could have written a more cogent argument.

    I agree, English is a beautiful language. It's a shame it gets abused.

    I agree that people should start speaking and typing like they are supposed to but I think 'lol' is acceptable, how else are you going to show you are mildly amused by something without looking like an idiot?
