I did enjoy reading this... and I agree. Whenever I'm talking to people who are using excessive internet shorthand I get confused. Most Dutch ones I can understand (still took me quite some time) but what English-speaking people make of it sometimes...

More often than not I'd have no idea what the conversation would be about. I don't like using shorthand (except for the occasional LOL, LMAO and those kind of 'common' abbreviations). Smilies aren't too bad I think, but right now on MSN and AIM and whatnot there's quite an overkill of these. Again, I only use the basics. The rest is all too fancy...

So yes, I am AISU (Anti-Internet-Shorthand-Usage) as well. LOL
