> From time to time I see messages here written in SMS "shorthand" language. I understand that this language, where "u r" means "you are" and so is considered to be "cool" among young people. But this abuse of English does not belong in a professional forum like Foxite, so I ask people not to use it. Please use proper English!

Benjamin Franklin received a letter complaining that he doesn't use his apostrophes, commas, semi-colons, etc. properly. In fact, in many cases, he didn't use them at all. His solution? He put a lot of those characters onto a page and sent a letter back to the person who complained and suggested that with the characters now supplied that they take them and make proper use of them as they saw fit.
