The Good :
....following on from a previous thought with a prefectly acceptable row of dots.
<start> a rant /mark it up/ or [end it]
small grey whispers
The Bad :
|:~{> no, please, no.
imho, afaik, and all those supercilious nonsenses.
The Ugly :
SHOUTING - it's just rude
txt spk - you're not limited to 160 characters here.
2nite - doubly bad - txt plus lazispelling
this 'n' that - grrrr.

Drat, i was beaten by gil in telling you all that ellipses have to come in threes.

I loathe text speak although i will sometimes use '2' or '4' in a text as it uses less space and therefore less money!
