Tolerance my friends, tolerance. Most of the comments are about the translation from the spoken language to the written. Written language has gramatical rules and standardized spelling with "accepted" pronouncitation. Spoken language varies often by geographic, ethinc or gender interpritation. Various local dialects add color and character to a given portion of society and immidately identifies the group to which the speaker belongs. Spoken language is much more diverse and colorful than written.
Written language is at best a gross representation of spoken language. We do not speak as we write. Think about it. Language generally flows without the pauses we put between the words in writting. When you read you hear your own dialect in you mind. Occationally some one(See Mark Twain) will attempt to write the spoken language to show the character and variety of spoken language. It is quite difficult to do well.
So my point is that if some one writes, standardiztion is nessesary to communicate because to try to write in dialect can be very confusing because we have accepted the combined symbols of a word to have a specific meaning. In any given area of the world, the people have a group of combined sounds that have meaning. So, when speaking a dialect, one is stating their group affiliation and comunicating with their peers.
I would contend that Texting is very much a dialect as well. The young people have developed abreviation with their peers. The problem arrises when they try to use them outside their peer group. It can be very anoying to those of us who see it as poor spelling. It is not that, it is a differant language that we don't speak.
I can only assume this was a joke?
