Actually, I've found the opposite to be true. Some people who don't have english as their first language are more likely to overuse those shortcuts than those who do have it as a first language.

And of particularly interesting note, in my work with Deaf or severely hard-of-hearing people, they too are very likely to overuse such shortcuts in using written english which I find very intriguing.

Anyway, overuse of 'r' and 'u' and '4', etc. is rather indicative of a young personality regardless of original language.

Really? That actually is interesting, as I've always thought of such shortcuts to be purely born of the information age and to be found mostly online. Granted such constructs such as "-n-" and "-o-" have been with us for years in terms of products (ex "Land-o-Lakes Butter"), however recent years have seen an explosion of shortened word replacements used exclusively online to speed chat conversations.

That being said, I will continue to aspire to using gramatically correct english to the best of my rather limited ability, as it really does make conversations easier to peruse and understand.

In the meantime, Deathbrother u so suX0rs n ur s0 llamerz fur try-n to b so PUF-kick-@ss

Well,

That's an interesting note with the disabled...and now your nic makes much more sense. :) My experience is having worked for 8 years with hundreds of students taking TOEFL courses (Test of English as a Foreign Language), and none of them used "wanna," "u'll" or "thx" as shortcuts in the same paragraph as a correctly spelled "incompetent."

"Wanna" and "u'll" are somewhat sophisticated slang...relying on knowledge of correct pronunciation to make a substitution...not that easy for someone still learning the basic language. The whole paragraph reads like effected slang, not an earnest attempt at writing English while using shortcuts.

He's trying to provoke everyone and he's acting. He's putting on a personality to piss everyone off. After all, only Prince writes like that. :)

Anybody that says "Deathbrother is comming soon to kick your *** " and then apologizes for mispronunciation is just screwing with you.....

If he does speak another language, have him come and re-write that paragraph correctly in his first language.

We'll see how long it takes him. :)

[MNSG]Deathbrother...you should have your status permanently changed to childlike. You don't come in here and preach your words of crap and expect people to stand around and let you do it. I don't know why you're here, and frankly, I don't want to know why either.

Plus, if you're going to come in here, try to make sure to type as well as you make yourself out to be. If YOU talk to people whom have played against ME they would tell you that I am good and probably better than any spawn sniping lamers like you. Play me one on one in anything (RA, DM...even CTF if you're so inclined) and we'll see who the better player is.

Uh...I hope you are just playing around and not really serious. These people here are one of the best group of individuals around. Don't try to insult them with adolescent taunts and instigations. If you want to challenge some of us...then post it properly. My friends are too mature to submit to childish rants.

I remember playing some of your clan members and they seemed pretty cool...don't disrespect your clan this way.

Prophetus!!!

Good to see you man.

I was ROTFLMAO at WAnk's posts in this thread. Although, I think it is a complement to call these llamers homosexuals. Most homosexuals I know are extraordinarily cool, and these llamers are not cool in any way. I love you WAnk (in a purely brotherly hetero way), but sometimes I get the urge to be Mr. Political Correct Police. ;)

Otherwise, I was lol at your drunken post. Keep up the good work :) WAnk RULES!!!

I was going join in the fun, but after reading Proph's post, I am going to try to be mature. So I will just give one more ;) to my PuF buddies, roll my eyes at the jerky jerks and move on.

I'm really sorry, I just HAD to respond to this.

"iam sorry of my poor pronounciation."

Ummm...you pronounce when you speak. Not when you write. That's called spelling.

"...but its not my first language..."

Well, yes and no. Anyone speaking English as a second language wouldn't use "u" "r" "ppl," etc... But if you're saying you're not fluent, well, I'd agree with you there.... :)

See, to effectively play someone that's stupid, drunk, wasted, unfamiliar with the language, etc..., in a manner that's even moderately believeable, you have to be intelligent. Even when you're doing it for entertainment purposes. Take the writers of Homer Simpson's character, for example. He's a fool, but the depth of his foolishness has so many layers, it's funny. You're about as thin as a sheet of paper in comparison.

Yours has been a less-than-sophisticated performance. Please draw the curtains, collect your $3 in receipts, and bow out before good people like Prophetus actually waste 5 minutes on your bad acting.

The only thing more pathetic than seeing an intelligent person poorly play a fool, is to watch a fool that thinks he's an intelligent person playing a fool.

First of all I would like to welcome back Prophetus. I hope everything is good and you are feeling better. We missed you.

Secondly, why does that guy type hehehheheh after each sentense?

Is he realy that stupid or does he just act like one.

Also why is it that most of the clans that I meet online (I said most, not all) are bunch of bad looser, trash talking, players.

This is not about being good or bad players, It is more about playing with ethics and honor.

We need more players that enhance the game and you enjoy playing with/against even when you get your butt kicked!

We should publish some code of conduct for all claners!

That has to be one of my biggest pet peeves in regards to online conversations. I don't mind a LOL or ROTFLMAO when appropriate and when used in moderation. However, some insist on putting them on every other line, and, well, it just crawls under my skin for no really good reason.

Just as with smiley's, they should be used like spice: sparingly and to enhance the meat... er... conversation.

The most ironic thing Dethbrother, is that you've posted here before asking for help.
And if you think you are cool and great for being able to talk big about a game, way to go. I'm sure little kids everywhere look up to you and want to grow up sounding completely incomprehensible.

Oh I'm sorry, was my spelling and grammar too good? Here, let me try again:

"Yu stewp sackee deek end know gud fo tormanet of onreel. I kix yuo wig mi pinf. Yu know gud I hop yuo no tat. I am beter yor."
