    Why do people need to use acronyms? Can't they spell things out? When one laughs, can't they say "haha" or something?

    My favorite one to see is when people say "l8er" - they're saving 1 keystroke and look like fools. When will the world learn.

    It might take a few seconds less for them to compose their message, but it ends up taking me considerably longer to read and understand what the heck they're talking about...
