*sigh*

Sometimes I lose faith in the future of the human race…never more so than when I’m researching social networking sites. These comments are from the Bebo friends list on a profile of an author using it to promote his books (presumably if they bought any of his books, they wouldn’t be able to actually read them):

  • Yeah but, no but, yeah but, it’s like dis innit, I mean, whatever, like, as if I dint no dat, u dissin me or wot?

    What annoys me more is the effort someone will go to to type like that… take Warcraft – people type ‘plx’ for please, when surely plz would be more fitting?

    or someone becomes some1. Damnit your fingers are already on the o+n+e almost from typing the ‘some’ bit.

    I think the divide between the ‘educated’ and the chaff will widen over the next few years…
