I’m currently working within a group, to which I was sent an email using Lolzspeak in a formal setting, I as my previous post details, I’m trying on this mantle of more responsibility, however I fear I’m turning into a grammar/English language Nazi as this really annoys me. (I did consider putting that in [caps lock] however, I think that would be worse!)
Why do people in a professional setting, complete with web-based spell checkers deem it necessary to write “how r u?” or “plz mail this 2 me”. The thing that worries me about the whole thing, is it that I’m being old and grumpy. Lolz cats are funny, period. Introduced to me by the immense @gravitystorm on a summers day in 2007 I liked the pictures and some of the annotations were pretty funny, and that was good. But in a workplace it just seems wrong, or am I just being cranky?
