  • apart from "t h x" there r other words which go from abbrevitons -> full form... like:

    p p l = people
    b t w = by the way
    f w b = friends with benefits
    little = little
    b f = boyfriend
    g f = girlfriend

    but i've noticed they've not changed "tbh" (to be honest) yet

  • There is an autocorrect in the system which writes the abbreviations in full form because it is proper English and thus every person could understand. It is for your own convenience :)

    You can send your feedback there :- http://www.girlsaskguys.com/contact

    by the way if you desperately wanna write it,
    Do this trick => Tl-lX

  • There are a few B T W is elongated to By The Way - I honestly don't know they probably think they are helping you. I suppose they are trying not to encourage internet speak because they want GaG to go out to as wide an audience as possible

  • You're on a computer or a tablet or a smartphone, not on an old 10 button phone.

    • oh shit it happened again lol I wanted to write multiple question marks and it became a single question mark, creepy shit :D

  • I really like this. It helps you get more answers, I won't read 'text speak', its lazy writing. And now they do it for you and you are complaining still? kids...

  • They've been doing autocorrect for awhile :/ It's annoying since i d k can give a post a different feel than I don't know, but as long as they don't touch LOL, LMFAO, etc... we're good.

    I also hate that they've limited us to one piece of punctuation. Like the interobang is A Thing and so are curious ellipses!

  • Why?

    Because the admins refuse to allow abbreviations or ebonics to be your second language.

    You must speak fluent English little sis!!
    :D
    They are trying to better equip you for your future.

    *Realizes everything I just said is bullshit* lol!

  • I kind of tend to get annoyed when gag does this. Like sometimes I'm too used to typing short forms with my friends, and I'd do it on here as well. Sometimes I meant "between" by typing B T W, but gag changes it to "by the way" lol same goes for P P L and L I L too :/

  • yeah every time i write I D K it turns into i dont know. like let me live freely with my abbreviations dammit. whoever is in charge of that is a real nazi.

  • It's like that with many words. it also corrects L I L to little. And P P L to people.

  • Same as friends with benefits by the way and other things, they are trying to eliminate awful text slang because it's moronic.

  • Yeah I don't know why it does this, whenever I shorten a word it writes the whole word...

    Like I D K
