Hi,
Hello guys
Do you think it is good for us to create topic with the attachment of multiple abbreviated words?
Even moderators using abbreviated words?
How can we help users if weren't using right spelling?
Is this a sign of laziness?
If we are going to edit others message make sure were also following the right procedures.

Short forms often confuse , in communication while chatting ,i don,t like xo brief comments

Personally I`m against shortcuts and using full & correct words, is the originality of English language!

Am in favour of it but only when using social network, as longer we understand each other it minimize the writing

Nope, I barely use it. I'm not a fan of colloquial acronyms or abbreviations. I only use it when the conversation is time wastîng and boring or when I lose my credîbility. Notice how many use this form of conversating including the "ebonics" or mutual slangs, well, I think it's odd.

it depends where you were going to use some abbreviated words you've should have know the formal letter writing. Definitely it is allowed for some instances and reasons it depends upon the quote you are quoting. i'm bleeding now

Short words are very useful because it save time a lot that's why I like it
