>As much as I enjoy texting because it frees me from having to actually converse with people when I don’t really have the time or the desire, I think some people are being hurt by it.
Basically, there are some people whose only form of written communication is via SMS. What this results in is a person who thinks the letter “r” can be used as a verb at all times. And don’t even get me started on the lack of punctuation and capitalization. Is it really that difficult to learn to type or press the damn shift key?
