I personally see it as more of a burden to type in non-standard English. Any type of "net speak" of "1337 sp34k" is not only annoying, but frankly more time consuming than establishing a clear and concise message. As a new comer not only to this forum, but forums in general, I find it sad that posts like this have become a necessity. Although, since it is needed, I thank you for pointing out this easily avoidable issue.
