And yet ditto appears in English dictionaries, unlike TBT (other than urban slang dictionaries). English is a mongrel language based off of Old High German (Old English), Old French (Middle English), Latin, and a seemingly infinite number of other languages.

Folks all I want to do is read the post without doing kid cell phone tricks.

I just don't care to be Googling all these little acronym to be able to read and understand a post. I think their are enough keys on a keyboard to spell the words. Yes we also have spell check to help.
Because this forum is read all over the world it also must be difficult for others to understand all those acronyms.
It's got to be hard enough for people who's first language isn't English to ponder through the post with out a bunch googly glob.

Netspeak

I think that some dictionaries have (controversially) started including Netspeak, like Netspeak, LOL, etc.

We can't really say much when MS "cuts its nose off to spite its face".
