I can certainly relate to Christina C. when she wrote about texting in her article, "Luv 2 txt." I believe texting does ruin our grammar. As Christina said, "The way we type when we use virtual communications devices affects the way we spell." I myself have once wrote "u" instead of "you" on a school assignment. Even though I love texting, I think kids should spell out the whole word instead of using abbreviations. That way we can practice spelling and have fun communicating with our friends at the same time.
