I don't mind if they abbreviate certain words and I could understand it, but sometimes these people (not only on GAG, in real life too) seem to love to spell like this 👉 Hi h0W r eu? Wot r eu 2ing nw? Y3r i b0r3d. (let's hope this don't get removed as grammar) 👈 No jokes, I have friends that type things like that and I have to constantly ask them to spell it properly.
What's nice about spelling things this way when you could just spell it properly?

If there is one thing my mother always made sure of
it was to correct grammatical errors.
I used to do it as well.. But now my brain
just reads it right, regardless. ^.~2

Yes, it kinds of get on my nerves. I myself use short forms of certain words too, but I make sure that people could understand what I'm trying to say.
I used to have a friend that spells like this and constantly updates her facebook status with all these of spellings that I could barely understand what the heck she's trying to say. I ended up unfollowing her posts on timeline (still friends on facebook) just so that I don't need to go through all the trouble scrolling through her posts. Mind you tho, she literally updates her status few times per hour. I know that younger kids in primary school would do this to look cool, but seriously, people that are 16/17 and still doing this? What are you, or we? A five year old kid?2
