Its like TXT talk. I can change between the two. However there have been times when I have accidently merged into TXT talk on a test paper lol. No kidding.
Well that's you, but I have never done such a thing, and I have been using the internet for 10 years now. And I have a cellphone, which I txt on quite a bit (during the school year). So you're theory is disproved.
The internet does not make people stupid.
It makes them lazy. Pure and simple.
People use words like FAIL, not because they can't come up with an argument, but because they are too lazy and that word has come to be known as something that encompasses an explanation, meaning that the person disagrees with the topic at hand.
It's not hard to see the difference. People just have a thousand more metaphors, that's all.
