The grammar police must have gone mental back in 1837, when Pitman introduced Shorthand. No vowels, no letters and every word abbreviated. Be thankful that most TXT speak can be easily deciphered.

    I can understand most but can be annoying sometimes to. I find it hard to read posts when theres a lot of typos (hehe) and people dont read back what they have written!

    Yes, I hate autocorrect. I managed to write "you moose" in a text to my girlfriend once instead you more. Cant remember the full sentence. Tapped the o one to many. Autocorrect has been of ever since!
