So, I should have refused to leave off the last three letters in my name, and never be able to use it in a handle? I consider that as long as it sounds correct, I really do not care whether a screen name is spelled correctly. I consider screen names to be nicknames; and a nickname can be spelled HOWEVER the person being called that WANTS to spell it. I do, though, think the 'chat speak' is overrated....what's wrong with spelling out a complete word, it really does not take any longer to type it than the 'slang' so many of the kids use on here. On a phone, for a text message, sure...but there you just do not have enough room for complete words. On a board like this, though, you do...so type it out all the way, makes it much easier to read.
