    I hate to be a typing cop, but punctuation and capitalization goes a LONG way. I stopped reading this post 1 line in. I am sure other will too.

    Texting has ruined typed communications forever! The accepted texting abbreviations creep into everyday life more and more. I even had a person say something and follow the sentence with "LOL".

    Yea, I can accept some "poor" grammar if you're a non-English speaking soul, but, this is pretty bad.

    "F U" still works in almost any language.

    Move aside price police. The grammar police are in the house.

    LOL has been part of the **english** language for at least 15 years.

    It appears in the daily newspapers all the time.

    I remember when people started saying "CD player" and "personal computer" in everyday conversations. Man, it really irks me how our language keeps evolving.

    #15 6 years ago

    At first I thought it was a post from B_R.

    Sorry the OP got the shaft

    "personal" and "computer" have been words for literally hundreds of years.

    I still don't understand what "Little Old Lady" has to do with anything.

    I can't stop laughing at how F'd up that statement is.
