Grrrh - I don't know what will become of "British English"

If that Microsoft expression is not enough to make someone as stuffy as I am see red, Text-speak is a whole lot worse.

Look at the millions spent on communication, particularly in computer-based industries like Government Information,P.R. and Advertising.

Text-speak is the written equivalent of an insolent grunt like that awful TV teenager "Kev."

Bad spelling, syntax and formatting are all forgivable, but not the trendy, clever-clogs attitude some think it is.

Well, I'm well past my three score years and ten so ...... I'll support the CGA approach.
