Or perhaps texting is just training us to lower our standard of expectation of what really qualifies as "communication".


I like to think that there's a law of conservation of stupidity, much like matter. Like matter or energy, stupidity cannot be created or destroyed. Some people will be less dumb about certain things. Over time, we may get better at some things, but we will get worse at others. The quest for knowledge is a sisyphean task, the only respite is to enjoy the process.

As long as thoughts and ideas are being communicated why be critical of the language used? Texting is simply another language. It doesn't lower standards anymore than communication in Gaelic or Basque. The very definition of "communication" is imparting or exchanging information or news... the successful conveying or sharing of ideas and feelings... social contact. Texting does all of that which makes it a valid form of communication.

Also, don't forget that prior to the work of a bunch of grammarians and word freaks like Webster in the 1800's - English spelling was more like texting than not in terms of being radically arbitrary.

That's what happens when you type with one finger under the influence of painkillers.
Why are you only giving one finger painkillers?

So spelling rules are like BJCP style guidelines.   8)
