I would like to encourage members to not use all of the Internet/Phone slang and shortcuts.

Some people may understand this type of communications but there are many people who easily get confused trying to figure out what is being said.

Please instead of use

ru are you
u you
b be

I do think most people understand the pure Internet slang such as
lol laughing out loud
omg Oh my Gosh
rotf rolling on the floor laughing

but, I still encourage members to minimize the use of all of this. It really doesnt take that much more time to type in full words, and by doing this, your posts will be clearer and easier to understand by everyone.

By not using those shortcuts, your posts will be better understood by everyone.
