So the other day i commented on it and said "You know the internet has a spellchecker right?", and she says "yeaa???"


Does anyone else not see a point in misspelling all your words on facebook to try to look ghetto or something?

To be honest I never understand why people type like that, surely it takes more effort.

It's the internet dude, who cares? Loads of people type short-hand or use l33t-speak, and young girls are notorious for typing like..that.

It's self-expression, if anything you're the "nazi" for having a problem with this.

I commented, "Did you know the internet has a spell checker?".

Does anyone else not see understand why people consistently misspell words on Facebook? Are they trying to look like they live in and/or are from the ghetto?

Fixed the grammatical errors that I saw. There's a good chance someone already did that, but if no one has can I have a prize?

If anything the term 'Nazi' has been grossly misused by the internet and it's denizens.

Typing shorthand would be making less effort. Like josh said, typing like this would take a lot more effort/time (I imagine). Can she expect people to read through it when she types it like that though? And if she doesn't, why even post it in the first place?

EDIT: and to Silverspurs's sig, I'm reading a Kurt Vonnegut book for school right now. He's a great writer. I know it doesn't have anything to do with him but i thought I'd post in anyways

People who type like that usually can express themselves better. They can convey the emotion along with the lifeless text. Its actually a really refreshing way of saying things on facebook and the internet in general.

How come? I'm puerto rican just like this chick. And how would that be bullying?

Just because you're the same race as someone, doesn't mean you can't be racist. It's just, ironic, hypocritical and just plain weird. But possible.

And yes. That sort of typing annoys the life out of me.

My point was that short-hand is often not grammatically correct, yet people use it on the internet and in mobile phone messages all the time. It's not an uncommon thing and there's no sense in being upset about it. You're right in that the way she types takes more effort, probably more effort even than typing normally.

I guess i never thought of it that way. I was thinking in terms of how annoying it is to read, but I definitely see your point.

That's true. I'm not racist though.

Why should I care?

Why should you post if you don't care?

On UG, if someone calls you racist, it's probably their way of letting you know they are out of custard.
