    In the age of iPhones and Androids (and other phones with full keyboards), textspeak just isn't necessary. In fact, it seems like it would take more time to use textspeak than to just type. Unless you're using a really ancient phone, in which case I could forgive it.

    But on a website, other than some Internet acronyms and a few other examples, textspeak just comes across as bizarre.

    I don't mind if you're straight. Just don't flaunt it in public.

      ...plus on the keyboard on my Android phone the keys are two small for thick fingers.

      Getting thru a typing as quickly as possible, before I hit something unwanted & everything laboriously accomplished to that point just flicks away & I can't recover it.
