    Relying on internet websites for advice regarding kids instead of using your life experience/own values makes you dumb

    Found this site disappointing and lacking the MILF pictures I'm looking for on a mom's room web page

    The internet doesn't make you stupid or a bad writer. I've been using the internet for more than half of my life and my writing has not suffered, in fact, I think it has improved because of it. I probably write more on here, AIM, and in e-mails than I do for school. When there are no character restrictions I feel it's unnecessary to abbreviate. There are of course the common internet acronyms like lol, lmao, and a few others that would be ridiculous when at full length I try not to abbreviate. Imagine someone typing out "laugh out loud" every time.

    It's really up to parents and school systems to teach kids not to be dumbasses. There's an e-mail to a professor in the article that's just stupid. It's not even the abbreviations that make it that way. It doesn't matter to me if people abbreviate, but if it doesn't make sense I can't stand it.
