This is the place to discuss Pacers4Life and his texting style, so as now to disrupt all the other threads on other matters.
You know, this "discussion" with our new favorite 17 year old may be a precursor to a serious philosophical and practical battles in our culture ten or twenty years from now.
It all depends on if texting continues to be very dominant (sorry Peck) in the years to come. (For instance, voice recognition could take some steam out of it.) But if it does, then we may see a battle between what is correct grammar. I mean, we don't use Shakespearian English any more, and those guys told Chaucer to take a hike.
So who knows?
