I'm caught between to schools of thought on this one. My cool and trendy modernist self wants to embrace this emerging language and see it as a way that english is evolving and adapting to the modern world.
However, my actual, honest self (which makes me feel like a grumpy old man a bit too) makes me wants to scream at them to spell things properly. That's before we even get started on grammer.
So, in summary it drives to mad, but I can't decide whether it should or not.
L8r m8 an all dat!
