i think it completely kills the essence of the word. i love "probably" it's so cumbersome and awkward to say, which is great because i usually say it all slow and thoughtful.

"Prolly"'s a colloquialism. I've heard people say it. Like "winder" for window, or "gonna" for going to. "Cuppa" for cup of.

"ppl" bugs me. It looks like it should be pronounced "pipple". This isn't the Wheel of Fortune or whatever that game show was where you had to buy a vowel. They're free.

Also using single letters or numerals 4 words. Do u do that? That bugs me.

I can see it if you're sending a text message from your phone, where data entry is so awkward that every saved keystroke is good. But it has no place when you're typing from a standard keyboard.

i can understand combining two words into one like dunno and gonna, mostly because well, i do it, and it actually makes sense because you're knocking out a lot of letters. and i say "gonna" in casual conversation (although i don't say "dunno" i say don't know").

interesting side note: my grandpa used to say ginner instead of finger.

ppl definitely bugs me more than most. i especially hate imho, how is that even used enough to warrant a standardized abbreviation? and hth? hanfd? i can't even understand that.


i actually type on my cellphone much like i do whenever i type, although it takes ages, because i'm anal like that.

*destroys those that use "prolly"*

Seriosuly............it's just retarded.

"Thxies" at least is kinda cute.

"prolly" makes you look absolutley retarded, and is an automatic placement of -50 on the 0 to 100 scale of respect.

Don't assume they are trying to abbreviate "probably". There are plenty of people out there who just can't spell. Live Journal is a terrible place to learn English skills. I bet there are lots of teens paying more attention to online grammar than they do to what their teachers are trying to pound into their heads at school.
