Unique dealies with “Text communication…”

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Chad Michael, Apr 1, 2003.


  1. Just thinking about how text communication (emails, forums, anything using keyboards and screens) is different from actually speaking to people. I get a kick out of it.

    LIKE WRITING IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.

    (Seems like the person is yelling)

    how about never using capital letters, even when referring to proper nouns like john turner?

    (a bit rebellious, easier than hitting the shift key, and not offensive like caps might be)

    hEy d00dZ aN 8eeOtChiZ, wH3zzAAApp!!

    (Mixing numerals with letters and random capitalization)

    Mispeled words like crackeling and mikrophone and impedence and cardoid etc.

    (I’m not the most pristine speller, either)

    Oh, the people who use exclamation points after every sentence! What’s with that! I don’t know!

    (my boss does that...)

    :D

    Ever hear a band called Mezzoforte? I think they're from Iceland.

    Good job in hijacking your own thread ;)

    Yes, I´ve heard of Mezzoforte. I seem to recall that they are working on a new album now.

    And yes, they are from Iceland.

    Why you ask?

    I'm a fan of contemporary jazz. I have the cd "Playing for time" (bought it about12 yrs ago) and I've never met anyone who has heard of them.

    Ever!!!!!

    My favourite is when one TBer refers to another as a "scum sucking bottom dwelling sheet for brains" then puts a smiley next to it - as if it's supposed to make it OK.

    "Every on TB is dumb" :)

    ... don't get angry, I put a smiley face next to it. So there.

    It´s alright to be confused, we all are.
