Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh don't get me started. I get a message from anyone under the age of about 18, and it takes a good ten minutes to decipher. You can't tell me that coming up with such creative ways to abuse the English language is somehow more timeefficient than simply using the correct spelling and grammar.
