I suppose like most bloggers, I’m a bit of word enthusiast (understatement of the year), and grammar and spelling are important to me.
You might agree with me, and don’t you find that spelling and grammar seem to be way down the list of people’s priorities now, especially on social media? A quick example is yesterday I read a status that claimed that the prime minister had upped the terror alert level to server in the UK. I didn’t realise that our government servers were open to attack by terrorists – what would it mean, that our TV would go off? That our tax records would be hacked? That our bank accounts would all be drained by overseas terrorists who hack into our national servers??
It took me ages to work out that “server” was actually supposed to be “severe”…
Anyway, here’s a little video for you that my daughter shared with me this evening. I hope you like it. It kinda sums up evryfin i h8 abt online txtspk. U wiv me?
