Thread: This IRKS the hell out of me. Drives me nutsy...

  1. #1

    Default This IRKS the hell out of me. Drives me nutsy...

    Why do people HAVE to use text language when they talk to people? I find it annoying and stupid. I can't figure out half of what they mean. pwnd, for example is one phrase I WILL NEVER FIGURE OUT.

    Why do people use it? I mean I admit I use some like LOL, and BRB, but that's about it. Why not just USE language as it is meant to be. Sorry, I am a bit behind on slangs and stuff, and it annoys me a bit.

    I think the reason it annoys me so much is because I am a writer, and I've always taken pride in that.

    I can tolerate most chatspeak. But this... this... THIS... is just unacceptable:

    Pwned is gaming speak not really text speak. It is based off of owned and means that you have dominated that person.

    You sir are a hypocrite you make a thread saying it irks you then proceed to say oh well i use it....just not as much.(no offense but it seems to me you only don't like it because you don't understand because you are behind. WOuld it really be that hard to figure it out)

    Sorry; I got annoyed when someone was using that pwnd thing, and I admit I am also tired of text language.

    If people flame me, so be it. I was just frustrated. I just don't understand the whole text language thing and well, it does annoy me a lot. I had to vent. Flame if you wish, I just don't care, because life is too short to worry about what people think.

    I admit to using "lol" sometimes. But only when something is funny, but not funny enough to laugh about. It's more of an alternative response to "That's ironic!"

    That wasn't a flame I simply stated a contrasting opion to your own. (and explained pwned)

    It's more likely we'd need the "opposite" translator... although I don't know if it exists!

    I don't mind the occasional LOL or BRB...it's the people who use actual 'txt spk' in the forums that bothers me most.

    "hi h r u im f9 cu l8r" is just not acceptable to me!

    Sure I can understand it...but this is not an SMS...put a little effort into it! I don't even talk like that in an SMS! I type out every word (sure it means some of my messages are 2 or 3 messages long, but better that than being misunderstood!).
