No Text Speak

Can we have a no text speak stikie in the LL (d'oh) with the title "no text speak" so that newbies don't start speaking in the inconprehensible language of "todays youth" Maybe in the Newbie section too!

Hope that makes sense

I agree! Anyone who writes and can read hardcore 'txt spk' on a Forum obviously hasn't been educated. If I see someone writing text speak I automatically think they are an illiterate Chav

Keep text speak for mobile phones and proper written English for the forum

I wonder if Ben could come up with a Chav filter for the forum?

You save time writing it, everyone else wastes time trying to understand it

Exactly! And Ali G. was a complete parody of the sort of person who writes like that!

Thing is, Ali G. was cool because Sasha Baron Cohen who plays him is one hell of a sharp (and educated) guy. Unfortunately, most Chavs who try and copy him totally miss the point that he was actually taking the p**s out of them!

And as for the Grandad bit I'm not that old! Besides, Sasha Cohen is only a couple of years or so younger than me (the guitarist in my old band went to the same school and was in the same year as him), so if he can be cool then so can I
