cast your (you're) vote.
no wonder gcse grades are (our) so high these days, every man and his dog seems to accept/ignore misuse of the queens english.
the number of posts on hukd that state your instead of you're is really getting on my teats!
is this a result of text speak? i don't think so ( cos it is ur ) ain't it.
maybe laziness or just plain ignorance.
cast your vote!

I think it's just polite when people speak to me if they at least attempt to speak the same language. I don't mind people making mistakes, but I can't stand people who insist it doesn't matter, they don't care and can't be "bovvered" to try.

But laziness is a disease that spreads from online forums to the real world. You spell lazy on here, you'll probably do the same on that all important job application.

I brought a drink from the store today.

I don't really have more than one 'style' of writing, so how I type on here is close to how I type in my work, my emails, even my text.

In fact, it would take longer for me to type in 'text' speak because of the way I was taught to write.

Ahh its easy to slip into text speak but that's to save message space more than anything else.
