    Re: OMG!!!

    I could not be an english teacher. Any internet abbreviation in a paper I assigned would result in an instant "0" for the assignment with no possibility of regrade.

    You would then have two grades: A and F. Then you'd be let go because not enough students are passing your class.

    Re: OMG!!!

    Last year in our English class, we had a girl write almost her whole report that way. Needless to say, she did not pass the class.

    Hence the first sentence in my post. I'd be let go even earlier when the school board realized I won't bend to their will by giving everyone "A"'s and making all the students feel good about themselves, rather than an "A" being something you have to earn.

    I know, I feel the same way. Half the kids don't work hard, but they get an A for effort......that's not right! I also hate teachers that grade on a curve and give everyone A's. It takes away from people who do well, and makes their accomplishments look average.

    Re: OMG!!!

    What a tragedy. I've been using communications over the internet since I was in elementary, and I've never had that much trouble leaving out "LOL"s or ":)"s in my essays.

    Slightly off topic, but if you ever want to make yourself dumber (or self-induce a mind numbing headache, try reading the comments that are left for the pictures on Icanhascheezburger.com. That is the true scourge of internet literacy.)

    EDIT: By the way, nice subject, I just noticed the subtle pun. :)

    If you have a teacher that grades on a curve and gives everyone an A, then that teacher does not know what a curve is.

    Re: OMG!!!

    lol and emoticans are one thing... the crap like on Icanhascheezburger.com... people that talk like that all of the time deserve to be shot.

    Except my old roommate, because it's funny to watch him annoy his girlfriend talking like that.

    Or youtube. That hast to have the WORST comments in the history of internets.

    Also: Yay another teacher thread!

    Meet the Smilies.

    I think writing assignments should have Jeremy Smilies in their text:

    I work with a girl who is obsessed with this site. Enough that she will come in and write things found on the pictures on the rather large whiteboard in my office. Nevermind the fact I have notes and things on there. She always finds a way to scribble something that is nonsensical and stupid.

    Needless to say I always get up and erase it immediately. Half the time while she is still standing there.

    I like that website. Of course there are stupid things written on those pictures, that's the point. They are trying to be funny. Most of the cat pictures give me a good laugh...
