In general, I am a full-supporter of good, old English.
I capitalize sentences; and proper names. I also punctuate.
I don't use text-type when typing texts.
I don't substitute "U" for "You" or "2" for "to/too" or "UR" for "Your/You're".
If you receive a text or see a Facebook posting from me that utilizes such things you can pretty much figure there's a real emergency going on in my life.
I do, however, utilize only a handful of frequently used acronyms that I learned from other forum-using homeschool mommies over the years.
Typing a well-known acronym in place of a few or several words saves time.
Are you familiar with these?
