I think there is a misconception here on how formal/sophisticated PD supposedly is. I read several different forums ranging in topics from cars, to sports, to video games. Every single one of them uses standard English and would have the same exact reaction to someone posting in textspeak. The claim that PD is more elite/sophisticated than most of the internet is wrong. Do I doubt that there are forums out there where textspeak is the norm? No but PD is obviously not one of those places and just because it isn't doesn't mean that we are elitist or oppresive.
I'm sorry I just don't understand how asking someone to post in understandable language is forcing them to conform. Conformity implies we are trying to force him to act, talk, and think like us (which is assuming people who use proper English all act, talk and think the same which is offensive in and of itself), and limit his right to express himself the way he wants. You also imply that p4e is using textspeak as a way to exercise his freedom of expression. He's made it clear that isn't the case, he does it because as he admitted he isn't the best typer and its easier for him to use textspeak. If you're trying to say were limiting his freedom of expression you're wrong. If anything we WANT him to express his opinions and thoughts, we just want to be able to understand them because we actually DO value his unique perspective and opinions.
@p4e: I'd recommend taking a typing class before you graduate HS. It was about one of these easiest A's I ever had and has been invaluable throughout college and my career. I went from staring at the keyboard and typing with 1 finger to typing 60 words per minute in one semester. Super easy!
Also, I have noticed a big improvement in your posting so props to you for attempting to improve even if you don't want to admit.
