No, today I'm going to say it's rubbish Wink Smilie

Good question, Grondmaster. And if you're going to cut it anyway, can I just ask- am I the only one who finds it tough to read that netspeak stuff? It's like a rebus (I never liked those as a kid), and I end up talking to myself at the computer, sounding it out. Feel free to use it, but it sure makes me feel... old.
Jehanne: I'm with you regarding the computerese shorthand; however, I'm just thankful that the internet is in my native tongue, as I don't have a second language. And knowing that English isn't the first language of many of our members, I am happy for the privilege to interact with them. Smile Smilie

If they or anyone else need to use shortcuts to get their point across, its okay with me. And when I encounter an unknown abbreviation that I can't interpret from the context, I ask for an explanation. That is how I learned the meanings of: 'lol', 'rofl', 's/t', and 's/b'. Also I think many of the shorthand terms came from chat sessions in order to reduce dead-air time.

I'm so slow typing and single minded that I can't post to the forum while carrying on a conversation in the chat room. Many of our younger members can multi-task, and if using these shortcuts helps them do it, who am I to stand in their way. Cool Smilie

And oldness is mostly a state of mind; however, "The older I get, the better I was." Wink Smilie

im jest wondering wat ppl out there think of LOTR....ill post l8er wat i think D


I thought the movie was quite frankly the best piece of cinemetography I have ever seen (with maybe the exception of Ben Hur). It has raised the bar for the film world.

But I am one of the few here who didn't care for the books but liked the story.

And I don't like the new net speak.. I only use it when I have only one hand to type (due to a baby being in the other arm). But perhaps I don't like it because I am an English Major and a writer...

What I want to know is why people keep asking this question instead of reading the miles of threads where we have been telling how much we like or dislike it and the reasons why. Smile Smilie


If you had just got here Grondy, would you really be bothered to read the 7 or so pages of "Who has seen it and What do you think?" in which we mostly run over the same old questions over and over again cos we can't remember if we went over them before or not. And in which, I myself change my opinion at least 3 or 4 times ion just about everything? I mean, would you? I know I wouldn't Wink Smilie
Okay, point taken, I'll leave it here and edit my previous rather parochial remarks. :o

I'll also edit out Jehanne's comment about short hand, and my reply after they have been up for a couple days, or maybe that should all go in a tavern or under info as another topic. What does anyone else think? Smile Smilie

can't stand net-speak...drives me up the wall. Not that I always use perfect capitalization and all that when I type, but I think it's a whole lot faster to just type like I normally do than to learn all these different abbreviations...
*withstupid*
I'm used to using some abbreviations though, like sth and sb and so and lol and rofl and things like that. But I don't consider them as "netspeak". cu and ic and oledi, that's netspeak. Big Smile Smilie Here on the forum, all right, it's maybe easier, but not in long mails or stuff like that.
Does this really belong in a tavern? A serious conversation like this one? Big Smile Smilie Naaah.
Why does everyone keep posting long posts?? It takes you an awful lot of time to read them!!! Smile Smilie

I don't suppose you would believe they might actually have something say? :P

All I ask is that they do it in shorter paragraphs so when my trifocals lose their place, it doesn't take me so long to get back to it. Smile Smilie

I agree there. It's easier to read paragraphs than to read a full text. You can skim through paragraphs more easily. Big Smile Smilie

oops, sorry. I'm definitely one of the worst offenders here. I just keep forgetting and getting carried away. I'll try to remember though. Smile Smilie
Long posts are fine, just break them up into shorter paragraphs with an blank line between them. Makes it easier to quote from also. Smile Smilie

I have nothing else to add... Wink Smilie
Well you and me both... Sad Smilie
