Codes kids use when texting

Yes, but technically, Lawrence, "several pounds" would consist of at least an "ounce." Ergo, due to its grammatical structure, my statement still stands. Now, if I'd typed "I haven't merely an ounce," then your retort would ring true.
Bolded a seemingly errant comma.

LawrenceU;

I looked them up online. They look like a they are a dedicated Yankee chain. They don't have anything south of Montgomery, AL :)

They looked alright. Sort of like a knock off of Popeyes.
We have both here in our area about 1 or 2 miles from each other...

Their presence in Florida further shores up my contention that they are a Yankee chain. :)

Popeye's was started by the Copelands, a major New Orleans eatery.

As for the kids stuff, wow, do I feel old. Even '80s music is now 'oldies.' Can you imagine GnR or Metallica being 'oldies'? What's the world coming to?

Seriously, this stuff is scary. And while I may be old for saying stuff like "these kids these days," the youth culture of today is so incredibly disgusting. The pornographic culture, fellatio as the new french kiss, drugs everywhere, tattoos and weird piercings... And what some of the piercings mean! Holy smokes. And those little rubber-band bracelets. I know so many 16-25 year olds who are in rehab, AA, NA, etc. Things have spun out of control. It almost makes one wistful for the old days of Woodstock. (At least the boomers knew that what they were doing was sinful.)

Actually, it would be emboldened since "bolded" [sic] is not a word. As for the comma's perceived inappropriateness, I maintain it is not errant, although it could be superfluous or unnecessary. I'll permit Lawrence or ScottishLass to comment on that. :)
Josh's comma is properly placed according to MLA rules (though APA, etc. may differ).

Wow, this conversation is like some we used to have over my Grandma's dinner table. (She & my uncle were both teachers-- she taught Spanish and he taught English.) But of course, coming from such stock (my parents were both very proper Southerners, too), I have to confess to being a bit of a grammar Nazi, too. (Not that anyone can tell too much on blog postings...)

Little and Brown agree as well.

I am almost certain that the local bwahameter will now be broken from Josh's roar.

Grammar Nazis--sounds like my family. I come from a very long line of educators and school teachers who insisted on proper grammar. My mother (not a teacher) and my grandmother constantly corrected me. It served me well in high school and college however. I didn't have to study grammar, it came naturally.

I played MMOs too, so was also familiar with a lot of it. ASL? jk!

But even if you're not - its a bit like reading the Canterbury Tales - sort of squint and hop around and you get the general gist.

I've seen @biblesummary on twitter. It's an account where someone is summarizing the bible one chapter a day into a 140 character tweet. But so far as I can tell they are not using "texting language". I haven't heard of the others though...

No son of the South claims Florida. Maybe a few counties in the Panhandle, but that is about it.

At least one of the others claimed to use txt rather than brevity.
