      doesn't bother me if it's just the odd word or two replaced with txt spk

      but any more than that, my brain just switches off (ANY excuse eh?!) & i won't bother reading it...

      Re: Text Type.

      So you save half a second by typing UR instead of your , i can understand this when using text on a mobile phone but when you are using a full size keyboard i do not see the point.
      Would you like to explain?

      Damm, knew we should have had adverts in this thread

      PS the poll should change every homepage visit, so you will probably only spot this once in a while.
