I think there are negative and positive things about using text/computer abbreviations on HubPages.
The good thing- and in general too, it's just so much easier to respond to a funny message by going:
OMG LOL LOL LOL!!!!
Oh my god that was laugh out loud laugh out loudddddddd loud funny!
But also, sometimes it just gets annoying to readers and especially on here, when we write to be understood and not to post gibberish in codes.
