Okay, so. I feel like a bad person for it, but I have to admit that I HATE reading badly-written things. If someone just declines to hit the shift key, and so it's all lower-case, I'll still read something... not so much if they left out all their apostrophes, but I'd still probably read it. But when I see a piece of writing or a forum post with a bunch of r's and u's and that sort of stuff... arg. I just want to not read it. I start thinking that the person who wrote it is preppy and uses only chat-speak and is otherwise illiterate. Does anyone else feel like this? Someone who uses chat speak, come here and teach me that people who don't type whole words are intelligent, because it bugs me that my mind automatically jumps to these conclusions.
