I spend quite a lot of my spare time on various VAG forums and I've been noticing a lot of people simply cannot write in English. A lot of posts seem to be littered with txt speak, little or no grammar and various slang from different parts of the country.
What's with that? I'm sure most people who can afford a semi-decent German car must be educated and reasonably articulate. It's not too difficult to write properly, so why are there so many cretins who type out nonsensical gibberish?
No doubt you'll get people defending it saying we have to type properly during the day at work, we can't be arsed to be clever all the time. If you type properly at work, surely that's all the more reason to do the same in the evenings when you're browsing the forums? I appreciate some people may have genuine learning difficulties, but it's very unlikely that all the people writing like kids do.
Before people start calling me a boring old fart, I'm just an irritated 21 year old who is concerned with the *******isation of our language.
