    Outside of text messages, the occasional brief email and maybe short written notes, I ABHOR text speak. I literally stop reading. Its so time consumming to read and just plain lazy to write. I think any encouragement to use it/lax regulations in schools is a crime against language, against art, against society. I am a stickler for grammar, punctuation and correct spelling (go on find the mistakes now I know you want to - I don't doubt their existence ) even though I am a poor speller and not particularly good at editing grammatical errors. I have to make an effort so that the meaning of my words can be properly understood. Why can't others pay me the same courtesy? I hate the excuse about the English language being difficult to spell. I learned, so have many others before me. Its not easy, it takes work and the learning never ends. If you find it difficult, TOO FREAKING BAD! If you prefer text-speak, at least learn the correct way first. The 'skill' will be of great use to you in life.

    "'Leet Speak' is more acceptable than "text speak", I think... so long as the proper rules of grammatical structure are enforced. Good day. "

    But this isnt even legit leet speak. The whole idea behind original leet speak was that it was faster and more simple then simply typing.

    that probably took you like 15 minutes to actually type out.

    This is not a good thing, you know that right?

    I'm over the moon that when compared to the generation younger than me I'm going to be considered an exceptional speller
