    Texting is bad. It discourages creative thought and word usage. Instead of choosing your words or increasing your vocabulary, you habitually teach yourself bad grammar, spelling, and a total vocabulary of 5 words: "like","umm", "lol", "wtf", "Whatevs"

    The funniest thing about this clip is that the geniuses at Fox are so out of touch with technology that they associate these abbreviation with texting as opposed to the internet.
    It`s also pretty hilarious that Fox used this as a way to bash texting.

    With the dictionaries on the phones these days, you can use AutoWord and the whole reason we needed `txtspeek` in the first place is gone. I loved the giant list of acronyms they showed, too. I saw like.. three I knew. I think some old guy makes these things up to make us look bad. ):

    But yeah, I`d keep the plate, especially if it just said `wtf`.

    I see no problem with texting. You kind of have to shorten what you type so that, not only do you type it faster on those teensy keyboards, you also fit the word limit. Change the technology on cell phones and we`ll talk.

    Funny, funny. I can see how they`d be pissy about WTF. People could have been laughing behind their backs and they wouldn`t know.

    BTW, DMV stands for Department of Motor Vehicles. Just thought there`d be some people who wouldn`t know.

    ... I would hardly call it a ``new`` language, the military also uses short termn words like ASAP, MB etc. But I guess I should get used at the fact that the media overreacts about... well... EVERYTHING, it`s pretty scary that people see the broadcast stations as reliable sources while they made their articles in such a short time.

    IT`S NOT A LANGUAGE! Just because it has different orthography/grammar/syntax than regular English, it can still be understood by speakers of regular English, making it not even a pidgin or creole, but a DIALECT OF ENGLISH, which is defined as "a variety of a language that is characteristic of a particular group of the language`s speakers," per Wikipedia, "particular group" meaning texters/internet-what-have-yous.
