I was just wondering how many people here when they text write like this:

hey m8, howz u? U cumin dwn da pub 2nite? Gnna b lotz of fit girlz dwn thr 2nite? L8er m8!

I find it very strange, when I'm online I tend to abbreviate my words. When I text though I even put in punctuation and stuff. It's very strange.

I sort of do, because I can't type very fast on my mobile phones, I'm more of an msn person myself.

"its {name} dou wanna come out 2night" sort of thing.

No. I think that it is awful and actually just plain lazy. Texting is doing to the English language what chavs did to Burberry.

What I normally do is type it out in standard English, then cut out a few spaces and maybe shorten a couple words, so it's cheaper.

I use web talk, like used on MSN messenger. But only when I don't have time, say, during counter strike or another online game. Never in a forum.
