I call it "being an idiot."Some of the reasons people use this form of grammar and spelling is because of social networks, such as Twitter, which only allow a certain amount of characters.Such words might include:Dis- ThatDat- ThatDa- TheLuv-LoveWuv- LovePlz- PleaseTank-Thankand so on.
What drives me ABSOLUTELY CRAZY is when people use words such as:Lyke- LikeIz- IsWuz- WasLuff- LovePwease- PleaseShank- ThankMeh- Meand so on.
There is no reason not to use the correct form of these words. I believe that some people use this form of typing/speaking to look "cool." Ignorance is not attractive.
This is coming from a 13 year-old, so if you believe that all teenagers nowadays talk like this, that is not true…
P.S. I believe this form of writing is called "text talk."
