I don't mind it..it is basically just a new form of communication.

As for the poor spelling and grammar that many people use because of it...I more so blame this generation in itself than actual texting

Okay then, but still... All 'i's are to be capitalized, 'Satiracal' is spelled with an i instead of an a, and it should've been, 'I know using bad spelling is bad humor,' or something along those lines.

Like Pang said, however, texting is an efficient form of communication, usually. Though, I dislike the amount of abbreviations people use to save time.

Texting seems to ok with me. I text a little bit, not on a regular basis. It is not comforting however that most people waste a extreme amount of time texting. I swear, I go to a mall and see peoples faces pressed up against their phone all the time. You will not believe how many times people have bumped into me because they are texting and walking at the same time.

Another thing about texting I do not like is it's constant attention to detail. People text and drive all the time and it is annoying. Plus you see commercials about people dying all the time because they where texting and driving. It's kind of stupid how people can get addicted to the concept of texting and die in the process. So that is an area where texting sucks.

Another thing about texting I hate (this is my last rant) is the "text talk". The constant use of acronyms kills me. What annoys me even further is when people use acronyms when they are actually talking to me. When people say acronyms in a conversation and I am right in front of them I want to punch them in the face. But that's generally because they have an annoying voice too. Why the annoying voices?

Ok so it's safe to say I don't like it too much.

I hate texting in general. 1. Because of the terrible grammar, punctuation, and capitalization errors drive me crazy.

2. Texting and driving is dangerous to the texter and anyone around them. And is one of the biggest reasons why there are car crashes.

3. It annoys the heck out of me. It may just be me because of my mom being annoying, but when I got a cellphone, I was excited when I got one. Then in the next week I was bombed with texts and it annoyed me alot.

I'd say its stealing the minds of teens but not mine.

I usually hate it because of the reason above, and also:

1. It's usually hard to understand what people are actually trying to say. For example, you usually read something in different ways depending on your mood, often causing huge arguments over nothing.

2. All of the Above as well.

3. I'd much rather talk on the phone, as you can tell when they're being sarcastic, and they can usually relay much more information than just texting alone.

Its fine. I dont exactly feel like calling people because we can be busy. I dont see a problem unless using it while driving. I prefer that to social media.

I hate texting. I don't have a cell phone, and I just HATE it when I'm talking to somebody (in person), then they start texting... That just irritates the heck out of me.

I also hate it, (some of you other guys probably agree with me) because my hands are too big to hit those little buttons three times just to get an "N"... It's just not worth it.
