Or you could simply realize you're in the minority and that the site has standards. It's a matter of respect. Respect to the people who set up the site, respect to the people who frequent the site, and respect to the site itself.

Text-speak is nothing to catch up to - it's something that the lazy have fallen back on.

Yes, on this site we like to hold ourselves to a higher standard. I know there are people on this site that are from germany, and they take the time to write everything in english. Yes sometimes we get our words crossed and we miss eachothers saying, but that is more of a culture thing. I for one enjoy the high standards of typing out every sentence. It is just so hard.

And I like my old world where everyone types things out. For crying out loud I am 16, and cant stand when people use modern language. I mean lol could mean so many things. laugh out loud, live out life, love our life, lover of love. I think you get the point. Text language is just not needed and inconvenient. It also results in poor grammar, and in poor spelling. I am by no means a great writer, but I still try to write everything out in complete sentences.

So I am going to have to say superflyTNT was in the right. If you cant understand what your trading, how can you trade. However, I dont like when people label teens or younger people as irresponsible. I have been trading on this site since about 14/15 and have been running tournaments, and NHSD events since I was 13/14. So I do resent when people say teens are incapable of being held to higher standards.

If I was in superflyTNT's shoes, I would have done the same thing.

In my opinion, proper grammar just shows respect for everyone else on the site. It shows that you care enough to use punctuation and capitals along with proper spelling. And if you want to talk like your texting, then text and leave in in texting; this is a forum, not a cell phone.

Re: HS Trade Thread & Good Traders

Different sites on the Internet have differing cultures and values. This site, from its inception, has valued standard English (with a welcome to those for whom English is not their first language). If you look at the number of people with Masters and Doctoral degrees on the site, it is no wonder that the standard of language usage is "college level." That is also "successful business level." We simply find it more efficient, in the long run, than the, seemly, more easy, faster leet or text speak. Standard language is standard because it "works." The "works" is on both the linguistic and the social level. How you speak or post may not tell me everything about you (or even the most important things), but it does give me huge clues about your personality, attitude, and intelligence.

Re: HS Trade Thread & Good Traders

It is likely not a good idea to buy small objects from someone who signs their messages "SoD" anyway... ya never know where those objects have been.

I think how someone speaks speaks or posts reflects more their age and environment than attitude/intelligence. I suspect an intelligent 12 year old will speak and post quite differently from an intelligent 70 year old since languages evolve/change over time. If this were not true out boards would be filled old english or whatever.

As of right now you have 15 posts. Four of them have been signed SOD. If you're going to try to defend something using statistics, please at least try to use accurate statistics.

To echo others, TXT speak or chat speak are not looked fondly upon here. Please do not use either one.

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

True. "out boards would be filled old english or whatever." In fact, they are.

I respect you, therefore I proof-read what I write.

And with 11 posts before this mess, I'm sure everyone would've put two and two together. Or cared to. My bad.

Well then, first, try spelling things in a manner befitting someone who wants to be taken seriously. Second, drop the 15$, then neg-rep me for being an ass. I deserve it. I ALWAYS do.

If this were 4chan, or perhaps if we were all texting messages to the board, then it would be absolutely appropriate. But we're not. We talk here. We speak in understandable terms so that I don't need a translator.

I have a GREAT idea! Why not just TRANSLATE YOUR OWN POSTS. That would solve the problem immediately!

Oh, no, you di'nt! It wasn't that your virtually indecipherable messages were shady, it was that you noted "I came up on this squad" and "I can get anything you need", which indicates to me that you're trying to trade me things you don't yet have. THAT'S the shady part. I can deal with people that can't write messages clearly enough that I just don't want to even bother reading it, but I can't deal with people that are trying to "find" stuff to trade me. Shady.

I was famous, once...
