Something that drives me nuts

So, I just discovered a new website to procrastinate with. It's Lamebook , pulling all of the insanity of Facebook into one wonderful time-wasting site. If you click, you will not be able to resist looking at more pages. I'm treating it as a study into the slowly degenerating ability for people to type properly and have a bit of self control about what they share with the world.
On the issue of people losing the ability to type properly, I understand text-talk. When you are typing a message with your number pad, it's perfectly acceptable to abbreviate to make messages easier and faster to send. But when you are in front of a computer with a full keyboard? Take the time and effort to type full coherent words. In fact, l33t 5p3@k probably takes more brain to type in than regular english.
Here's a shining example.

My brain hurts just from looking at it.

Anyway, go ahead and check out Lamebook, just be sure to do it when you have some time to spare!
