  • Why do kids these days mispell words on purpose?

    I'm seriously just wondering what that's all about now.

    Jakeman, I see you do it quite a bit, could explain what it means?

    Does it mean like "look I type so fast, that I do the same "hacker typos" like 'teh' and 'nad'"

    Seriously...what's the big trend? Fill me in!

          "teh" namely.

          Is it part of a code that they send out to let others know they "are cool"?

                  Server time went wacky for some reason. It's back on track now.

                    Excellent timing too. See the purging users thread just down the page.

                      I do see a lot of mispelling on the internet, as many people really dont care about how they spell things or even try to do it on purpose.

                      I do not believe in your "teh" being a hacker term though, as I do type the word "the" as "teh" sometimes when I am typing at very fast speeds. Since that is a common mistake you see many people turn that into a normal part of how they type, but for many its simply a mistake.

                        qwaz,

                        I am 14 years old, and you may think that I am one of those who mispells words on the internet on purpose to look "cool". However I am one of the few youngsters on the internet who actually tries to get my typing spot on. I also get quite annoyed when someone [of any age] mixes up their spelling, grammar and punctuation. I believe those are simple skills that should have been learned early on in life, some get their "their, they're and there"'s mixed up. Sometimes their writing becomes hard to understand and read when these mistakes are made. So qwaz, I'm on the same ship as you, being only 14.

                            But why do it deliberately?

                            I can see no other reason but to hope to look cool somehow.
