    Am I the only person left who still uses regular words, no matter what the transmission medium is?

    The furthest I'll stoop is a an acronym here and there, like "iirc" "imo", etc. Oh, and I've stopped being such a stickler about capitalization - but everything else is normal words. No "2", "o", "u" or any of the other abbreviations.

    When I took my COMM215 course, I was blown away by the number of people who are considered to be business professionals that use business email for business use and include crap like that in it.

    I don't text, but I have used IM at work for years. Even though I may type slow, I still use whole words. But I also know the difference between your and you're, its and it's, and there is no such word as "alot".

    I absolutely could not believe the number of people who did that when I was working for my last job. The fact that a vice president would send out an email to a project team and include something like "u" or say "thx" at the end just blows my mind.

    IMO, emails are formal communication just like signed letters. You capitalize, punctuate correctly, and spell check it. Zippy communications back and forth between individuals... well, okay. But when a boss sends out an email to a project team that says, "would u make sure to include me on future communications. thx." - I just... argh. :mumble:

    Funny fact: We had an entire safety document regarding our manufacturing floor that, in numerous places throughout the document, warned against having "bear" feet and suggested that, if you got something lodged in a machine, you do not reach your hand in there to get it but instead use the safety "thongs" located next to each machine. There were probably 10-15 occurances of each word in the document.

    ditto. My grammar/spelling might not be the best... but I do make an effort at least.

    No.

    But consider this - the poster in question just told us that he's too lazy to spend 5 minutes changing a flat. I'd say you shouldn't be surprised. :D

    I've started to find errors in books now. Of the last dozen or so books I've read I'd guess I've found gramatical/spelling errors in 4 or 5. It's sad, really. :nonono:

    I don't remember the last time I read a book without finding at least one error in it. On the other hand, a small handful of errors in 100-500 pages isn't totally unreasonable.

    cannondalejunky here can't go 100-500 letters :p

    Don't you hate it when ...

    ... your hunched over your bars, totally mashing a tough climb, and your brake lever rips the bite valve off off your hydration hose?

    I hate that. :mumble:

    you can do whatever you want, but there's no rule that says we won't bust on you for being illiterate.

    it's grammar with an "a", for the record.

    Six (6) errors in a single sentence complaining about being called out for your lack of posting skills might make one think they have a point. :)

    Those rules aren't RM-specific, they are general rules of communication.

    And "propper" is funny.

    EDIT: WOOOWOOOOOWOOOOO here comes the grammar police with the smackdown!!

    Sorry I missed it. :rolleyes:
    Oh, and the red above is just to rub it in. :nuts:

    Six (6) errors in a single sentence, again.
    I counted them because I was hoping to be able to say you had improved. I guess I can keep hoping, right? :weee:

    uh... might want to apply to better colleges next time or work on your recall. 3 words wrong out of the first 4 isn't too good.
