    New Way To Type
    Hello Teachers:

    I've Run Across This Type Of Typing Recently Here On AMHD. I Thought It Was Just Some People Who Didn't Know How To Type. However, I See This Kind Of Typing All The Time.

    And It's Really Hard To Do. Why Would Anybody Do This? Is This Being Taught Somewhere?

    I can c your point.

    People just type any way they want, spell any way it sounds, and never worry about the rest. Maybe grammar and punctuation is not taught any longer in school. If it is - who is listening?

    Don't, I hate it!

    I even hate it when people send me SMS' like it! If you can't fit the whole story in one SMS, send me 2, don't force me to decrypt what you're trying to say!

    Txt is great innit?

    No, no it's not!

    That is so funny because a while back I posted a question about my W2 and the IRS, and with only those words and normal capitalization at the beginning of sentences. It wouldn't let me post until I got rid of some of the capitals. So my post looks like it was done by a second grader.

    I've just noticed that, although the forum converts the actual post from capitals, it keeps the preview (hover over the post name) how it was when it was typed!
