well i don't really like when they do it on purpose... it bothers me but I let it slide most of the time. I mean its their life and I used to do that so it's kinda like... i cant say anything because im just as guilty o.o
although i did it badly before because i was really bad at typing and hated typing full words cause i always forgot where the keys were cx and i admit im still a pretty bad type-er compared to my friends

I don't like it in general because it reminds me that I used to do that and urgh :'D
But when chatting with friends I'm fine if they do it. I've got a friend who, when texting, shortens "should" to "shd" and other things like that which used to drive me batty but I'm used to it now |D

But I'm always up for a good acronym as long as I can understand it :dummy:

Yes, with friends you can do whatever you want, but in an argument it's best to use decent English if you want the other to take you seriously :XD:

Well, I don't care if it's for something like sarcasm but when people type like that and they aren't messing around it's hard to take them seriously let alone read what they said. It makes me cringe facepalm

I've had arguments with people like that and the whole time I was wondering whether they were joking or not. It's super confusing... If you want to be taken seriously, then type seriously, really :XD:

honestly no
because i end up talking like this when im w/ friends, and using stuff like 
y
u
idk / idc
nah
ye
probs / totes
etc and it just makes it easier i guess
plus it comes off more informal to me?? like, there's a sense of joking around and humor

I can tolerate simple stuff like slight typos, no caps, etc, but messy typing?...Depends. I can tolerate that, too, but I'd like it better if they had at least some grammar going on. ;_; I mean, I don't even see how that'd be fun to be honest, to write like that. As a joke I won't be a grammar-flurp about it, obviously, I'm cool with it. But if they're trying to be serious or doing it all the time? ...Eeeeee...

If it's all the time that they do it, then it is bad. I would have a lot of confidence in someone because of that. You can, however, poke fun at people who do that.

i really don't like the commas like ,,,,,, or something
i tend to type with spaces between letters or one letter lowercase and the others capital like that when i'm super angry or excited
i don't really care for proper punctuation when i'm typing though, tbh xD

I mess with punctuation for joking purposes too, but never in serious arguments - though I might have a bad habit of capitalizing words for emphasis, whoops :XD:

Sometimes it stuns me too. At times, I've been in a chatroom with native speakers only and they were all genuinely wondering how to spell a word. I thought they were joking at first, and they kinda agreed on the wrong spelling on it, and I just sat there like "waitwaitWAIT you're serious in this. Guys no that's not how you spell it." It only takes a few seconds to Google it anyway, so it's like, why not use that if you're unsure :XD:

I think it's alright if it's done for effect. I tend to do that sometimes. I'll slip into "poor typing mode" for humorous situations, sarcasm, joke type things, etc. But it definitely shouldn't be done intentionally in a serious setting, because it's harder to read, and can be incredibly frustrating and off-putting to have a conversation with someone who types like that.

I try to type without making any mistakes, most of the time.
The only time I type like dis is when I talk to a friend and we're having a non-serious conversation on Skype or something, or when I'm joking. xD
I don't mind people typing ''liek dis'' as long as they don't exaggerate it too much and as long as I can still understand them.
