For as long as the content is still identifyable (without going into decrypting), that's still fine with me.

Plain reason being, is that I've seen worse than that... alot worse.

People writing that way just should be aware however, that in writing to the public, a writer is always also presenting him/herself to the public with all consequences.
The perception of that writer and the reactions will be accordingly.
In extreme cases 'too lax' writers are easily put off as immature or plain incablable (unless they explain why they write the way they do).

Personally - all typos aside - that's not how I would like to present myself to the public, but your mileage may vary on that ;)

Bottom line :
I (and others) have seen folks capable of many languages... HTML, Java, Perl, C++, Assembler, Fortran... But amazingly, at the same time unable to write their native language. And that's bad.

Masud.

And they speak proper English, like what I do ;), with esses not zeds in words like 'realise'. Lovely.


Crap! Do they also use that strange and incorrect spelling of "color"? If so I'm not sure I can continue to support this project! :p


I also prefer the colourful British English :)



I think that I know what you mean. But I have something else on my mind. I find B. English very pleasant to listen to (hence colourful), although it may seem very reserved and dry. Anyway I am sorry for off topic and SPAM. :-)

I like to see there was some agreement except from the Juggalo (Google it ;-))

I'll have a chat with the others in charge here. Also BTW and other abbreviations are OK just my usual forum browsing is on very militant non-txt spk boards so my eyes start watering when I see it on other boards.

Oh yeah and we are still here and working on the service.
