Of all smart people i thought you would have figured it out, that some people find it better to be lazy then not. Time is money, and typing these days mean time, so a few words un-properly typed out doesn't make them dumb. Or have a low IQ. Im just disgusted by your theory and yourself don't practice it? ..Hypocrites.. pfft People not only do it on Runescape, they do it in any multi player game while chatting. People use it in text messaging (txting) in real life. Why? For if you properly typed something on a cell phone text, i bet you would of paid half the amount of cash if you use shorter words, slang, etc. Can't handle it? Well, why not get the goverment or high authority to banned cell phones and multi player gaming? -.- And fail them in English Class if they don't abide in the system.
