ppl hu rite n chat spk need 2 b shot. kthxbai.

it's not clever or funny, it just makes you look stupid and makes me stop talking to you. and don't give me the "it's a valid modern language" crap. it's hideous.

and on a totally unrelated subject. warcraft spammers have a new tactic. invite to group and spaaam.
i recorded over 10 different character names that tried to spam me today (i was signed in intermittently all day) and it's incredibly frustrating.

Yes, I have an 18 pound naval cannon standing by to remove people like that, its not a modern language, its a dialect at best, a bastardisation of english for use by people lacking time or effort (or brains) to speak/write proper english. I dont mind some abbreviations and acronyms, but words that have letters removed to make them more phonetical are wrong. An example would be: BrB: Be right back (acroynm)Rite, as opposed to right is just bad english.

One other spammer tactic, calling you 'friend' as if that makes people more likely to buy whatever it is they are spamming. I dont like the group invite thing, I havent got it yet, but some other people have.

P.S. sorry for the wall of text.

invite spam

thats not a new tactic, happened to me a while ago, although it doesnt happen to me that often. just decline invites unless you are expecting one ^^

Re: invite spam

yeah well i am now. if i am not sure whether its is a legit invite i usually just shift-click the name, if it's a lvl 1 orc warrior i know it's spam.
i only ever get invites with my low leveled characters though so they (whoever 'they' are) must be targeting newbies on purpose.

there is always someone who is going to ruin the game for you isn't there >_
