A bit of help for some of you.

This forum is read by people all over the world, many of whom are professional pilots, or other professionals within the aviation industry.

Text speak may be handy when you are trying to send a message to your friends on a cell phone, when the keyboard can be awkward and you are paying for the service. On these forums that is not the case, and given the fact that a lot of people will be reading your posts, it is not unreasonable to make the post generally readable.

Similiarly it is not a chat forum. If you want to engage somebody in something only the two of you are likely to find interesting, then use the Private messaging facility which is also free. There you can write in whatever format you wish.
