So as to not try and reinvent the wheel, I am sharing this from my Facebook! Thank you Larry Smirin, President, Wooden It Be Nice!, Inc. for bringing this to our attention,
“Enough of the funny posts!
I have one serious question,
Who doesn’t want to smack people that speak only in abbreviations?
The alphabet’s free! Use it so we can understand what you’re saying that we’re probably not going to agree with anyway!
To which Bill Herrick responded,
“The military runs on acronyms, but that’s not the point. I don’t care for the degradation of our beautiful language and recognize this medium as a perfect place to practice writing it in good form, diction, spelling, and grammar. It is extremely distracting to have to decypher someone’s message, and why? It seems to me that it’s simply because the writer is too lazy to practice proper writing. Will we understand if one doesn’t use the language properly? Most of the time. Will we understand if it’s written out properly? Almost all of the time. Thanks for bringing this up, Larry. I’m with you on this.”
I agree with both of you!
