It's good cuz it takes less time while typing..but it has some disadvantages as well
sometimes i forget to write the whole word when writing assays...my teacher is annoyed sometimes..she says "you are not in msn!!" lool!! write properly!

but im over this problem...worked hard to overcome it!
If i fall along the way pick me up and dust me off...and if i get too tired to make it..be my breath so i can walk!!

for me it seems has no effect on the way i write in school, n i don't think it'll have any bad effect on anybody, unless the prson  in front of the computer 24hrs a day :D

and its ok if at least they write words which we can easily read

I dont sit 24 hours a day but somehow i got affected by it!!
Anyways i prefer sometimes to write the whole words (no shortcuts)

I can use these abbreviations and shorthand methods only while smsing and chatting. y refrain from using it....it helps u write faster and i think it helps to increase dexterity...it's helped me. Although it's bad if u use it all da time cuz some of my friends write  shorthand in their papers too.(sad) Even though it is understood w8 they mean they r not given marks..haha..they spend a lot of time on the messenger and facebook,no wonder im better off....so loyal to the forum...no social networking sites for me.
me too
i started "orkutting"
but hated it afterwards
then joined this site..

divine intervention!

oh god i just hate that kind of writing, when i add some one new in messenger and see them chatting like that i just feel like deleting them right away !

seriously it makes me sick ,people should use proper English everywhere.

if some words are used like that in case you are in hurry or such then its ok ,, but to make it your OFFICIAL writing way that sucks .

thats what i think. People should use proper English always. I've got a friend she is so used to writing that way, she even once wrote in the exam a sentence like " the manager lykd the idea bt he cudnt choose wch one was the bst "   imagine you write that in English exam ?

Haha-I think that people should just when learning to use a computer take a simple typing course by going online there are many takes like 10/20 minutes and practice and then you can type really fast and you don't need to use the internet speak (which sometimes makes you sound stupid with all your "this and dat" no offense haha... better overall just to keep your standard of english perfect while writing anywhere!
Excuse me... have you seen my sanity... I think I lost it. ;)
