Something that really annoys me. Especially when it's a text that invokes some kind of response, fair enough if it's something which doesn't lead to a reply but when you've typed an articulated response/essay text and somebody says k to you it immensely pisses me off. Is it just me?

Although the correct form of "k" is "OK", I rarely use "OK" than "ok"; not too sure why though. "OK" seems like I'm shouting or something

It's not really a word - more a letter.

Just using "k" seems to imply someone is being dismissive.

Because they are lazy and can't be bothered to write properly.

I normally would only put K if someone had annoyed me or if I couldn't be bothered to talk to them.

But yes it really annoys me when people K me......

It annoys me too it just seems a little dismissive especially if my text was long :unimpressed: I don't think I've ever used 'k' actually I always write out 'okay' or 'whatever' if you've cheesed me off

I even get annoyed to a lesser extent by kk. That sort of acknowledges you've said something important but shows the fact that they understand the message in a dismissive manner.

I know what you mean, I find kkk annoying, they look so stupid in their sheets, and killing blacks and jews is pretty ****ty of them.
