Interesting, I never realised 'Teh' was a dyslexia related thing, I thought it just came from typing too fast, I often do it and have to go back and correct myself. For some reason I can't get my fingers to type 'company' in the right order either, it always comes out 'copmany'.

Having said that I know plenty of people who type 'teh' deliberately because they think its amusing.

Can I just make something clear here..

 

There is a different between using

 

"teh/FTW/I'm in ur base killin ur d00dz"

and

"Hi hows ur mum. Say thx for the pres"

and

"How r u m8, im ome wiv ma bangin ova m8s"

 

 

The first is collections of phrases created with an almost cult-like status between gamers, irc users etc.

 

My Opinion: VALID

 

 

The second is abbreviation that was designed at random at the dawn of real-time text communication because of the need to type faster (minicom) or the need to reduce bandwidth/storage space etc (the origins of irc-like communication etc). It's not as valid today as, generally, these restrictions are no longer important - but I have no problem with its use.

 

My Opinion: Valid

 

 

The third is due to a generation of teenagers who could never spell in the first place who were bought mobile phones before they could walk just generally doing their best to communicate while attempting to sound cool.

 

My Opinion: A distasteful testiment to the state of UK society. INVALID

Winemaster - one of my colleagues removed your previous post. I wouldn't have bothered, myself - I've already mentioned to you in two PMs that if you have issues with me, take it to the Heldpesk where Tony or EvildrNeil or Geoff can deal with it.

 

In the past you've baited a couple of forummers on here; if you don't want to get banned for that sort of behaviour, just don't do it. It isn't rocket science.

 

So - stop PMing me, go to the Helpdesk, and stop trying to get yourself a ban - it really is quite childish behaviour.

 

Closing.
