Attack of the "U" People (in Off-topic)

Not very prominent here, but they still make an appearance on occasion. They aren't dangerous; merely annoying.

Seriously... if typing "y" and "o" are going to kill you, then I'll personally pay for your funeral. That is all. Have a nice day.

What are u talking abut, I dn't get it. Wh shuld peple type u instead of u?
No just kidding, I find it also highly annoying when people say u instead of you and y instead of why.

@Mansonfreak: You failed to type our "u" instead of "you". No funeral payments for you. :P

I've byouilt a program that solves yoyour problem. It changes each youse of 'you' into 'yoyou'.
I'll youpdate it soon to also fix 'r' into 'are' and 'c' into 'see'.
Maybe it coyould be added to the chat?
I'm yousing it right now to see if it works.

I hate you from the very bottom of my soul. ;)

It would be delightful if you could distribute that to the various New Player "wolves", Bart.

It would be delightful, Bast, if you would not encourage such outrageousness. ;)

That little wolf pack could use the help! :)

Reminds me of that Mark Twain skit on the de-evolution of English

If there ever was a word that could use less vowels, it would have to be.....outrageousness!

You could just counter the leet speakers by developing your own brand of English which uses even larger words then standard English. That, or you could just wait a year or two for them to forget what proper grammar and spelling they do know. That is when you can start to plot their demise without their knowing.

Imagine the fun and joy if, instead of carping someone in chat, we were required to Humuhumunukunukuapua'a them.
