    From the tMP Rules

    Yes, it does matter and yes, you should at least try to post on tMP in reasonably correct English. You'd better learn how to differentiate between when you're on MSN talking to your friends and when you are posting in a public forum, because you don't know who is going to see your posts in the future.

    I don't even use text spelling when I'm using text messaging on my mobile phone! If it's worth saying, it's worth spelling in full. :)

    but if you did write in txt it is quicker and usues up less space, so when full language may take up 2 pages txt talk would only take 1 so its cheaper too!!!!:p

    See, if you used a proper keyboard more often you'd know. ;)

    (Look at the first 6 letters top line of your keyboard.)

    text language.. yuk! its ok for text messages, not ok anywhere else! so, correct english to the best of your ability is much better! they don't teach it you for 12 years for nothing!

    But when you have a mobile that uses predictive text, its just as quick to use that. In fact, I tried to text the word txt today, and my phone didn't recognise it, asked me to spell it! lol:)

    "txt tlk" in text messages is ok - although it is very hard to understand.
    Personally I'd write a text normally and shorten words if I needed to to shorten the message to fit it into one text

    using it on forums like this is silly because it takes longer to read and sometimes takes longer to write - since you feel obliged to make every word shorter than it is
