    My advice: Don't bother.

    It doesn't take that much time and effort to type 2/3 extra letters does it? I mean...why act as if you have the intelligence of a goldfish bowl when you can normally get A grades in English? It doesn't make sense to me.

    As for understanding it - don't bother with that either. Do what I do and ask them 'nicely' if they can try typing in English ;p

    Yeah, there's a point where you have to realize that typing like that is pointless. There's nothing worse than having your MSN popup and have someone say:

    "Hey wtsup? lol omfg i feel sck rofl!"

    I just use lol or brb. Just easier but I usually try my best to just use english really. I don't bother with anything else but that really. But I know what you mean, it is confusing :lol:

I can understand it when it's covering up a swear or something, but jeez, some people actually write that way in school... :rolleyes:
