about adding "u" to the official English lexicon as a word?

like, it's easy to use, its meaning is understood, and it's already practiced by vast amounts of people in their everyday written communications.


The only real argument against it is tradition and some lofty idealism about language purity or w/e.


Personally, I love the lofty shit and I'd rather hang myself than say "U" in any non-ironic sense, but I recognize that my position is silly.


Furthermore, it is a genderless pronoun, so that's good, right?

I don't say u but I'd type yr sometimes

that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes

The upto in your sig makes it really hard to judge the seriousness of your posts



I am completely serious. I love languages and studying how they evolve, add slang, etc. We all use words that, at one time, would sound ridiculous, but we don't think twice about it.

I'd be against it purely for reading purposes
It's basic shape is similar to the letter a in some written forms and would be harder to distinguish in quick reading

People have stayed exactly as dumb throughout history.

Dude, I've thought this exact same thing. I'd love to read some sort of study on whether, on average, mankind actually tries to better his lot, or would rather just exist. I don't see many people learning for the sake of knowledge. For that matter, I don't see a lot of people trying to learn much at all unless there's an external motivator. Consider the internet. Basically infinite information to be had for the taking, but instead of going on Khan Academy or Justinguitar or what have you, they spend their time snapchatting and browsing dank memes.

It would be useful for profiling purposes. I could throw out the applications of anyone who would ever use it as a solid screening process for people I probably wouldn't like.
