No, YOU aren't an idiot, it's just one of the many things you'll see in local chat in pretty much any given MMO. For obvious reasons, we're sticklers for spelling and grammar (speeling and grammer?) here at Massively. The ever-increasing spelling and grammar issues in local chat hurt our poor eyes when we play our favorite games, and we want to know: is it just us?

lol using lol as punctuation lol, us1ng numb3rs 1nstead 0f l3tt3rs because you are just that cool, and a complete lack of anything resembling proper grammar or capitalization are pretty much the norm in-game. If you mention it, you're (ur?) sure to hear "lol its not skool lol". Most of the time we just give up in despair and try to ignore local chat.

But we want to know what you think! Do you strive for at least basic spelling and punctuation? Do you follow all the rules of grammar, or do you strive for extreme txtspk?
