    Yeah I all the time will be texting my non-gamer friends and I’ll type something like “/angry” and they are probably like why does she keep typing a slash. Oh well :D

    I remember seeing an article like that on the BBC a few years ago. I don’t use as much shorthand as everyone else though. :\ Emoticons online, yes. Shorthand, not as much as some people (I still type out my laters, you, etc) but I’m sure it would have made college note taking easier on me if I had done it more…

    I’m sorry to say I’m overly guilty of this myself. Yesterday I was running late for work and I sent this exact text-message to my boss:

    “OMG LOL I so overslpt this mornin. So solly, but dun wrry, i r omw.”

    Copied letter for letter from sent-text messages folder. Sadly, my boss understands it completely. ROFL!! I’m going to make an effort to keep a distinction between formal and informal writing from now on, I think.
