My take is that as long as I can understand what the person is trying to say, I don't care if they use slang to do it. I know it's a pet peeve to some people though, which can be quite funny at times..lol
I am learning to accept the slang as well borehamgirl, but when I can't understand what a poster is presenting, it drives me nuts.
Ironically enough, I also find that some of the posters who complain the loudest are really funny when after taking the time and trouble to post, a corporation lawyer couldn't make sense of what they are trying to say.
All in all, good posters and poor posters make up any site and I guess we just have to learn to control our emotions when we tolerate the poor ones.
My main emotion when I see ridiculous responses is actually the urge to laugh.
