    Response: Who's Catherina?

    You seem to be missing the point. The complaint isn't shortening "heroic" to "hc", the complaint is with adding in a random apostrophe for no reason. People don't understand what apostrophes are used for. Changing "Heroics" to "HC's" means you're either saying something belongs to the heroic (the heroic's handbag? - doesn't make sense) or you're saying the heroic IS something (this heroic's hard, please nerf it!). Saying "LFM random hc's" doesn't make sense.

    People need to learn how and when to use apostrophes and not just randomly throw them into sentences when they see fit.
    Pardon me, then. You have no idea how many people we get on this site who are incapable of understanding that sometimes, abbreviations don't just consist of the first letter of every word.

    Just the standard WoW/internet abbreviations like btw/lol/ftw.

    Never, ever will I say "u", "ppl", or deliberately omit vowels to "save time". Yes, there's a reason you conserve text space in SMS messages by shortening words, but here we have character limits in the thousands, and keyboards with keys dedicated to single letters, even laid out in such a way that it makes it easy to type proper words.
    I don't want to see the language degenerate into a mess over the next two centuries just because of that bad habit.

    The rest I type out completely. I'm in no hurry, no need to shorten stuff and look stupid. The stuff I do shorten is pure habit I'm afraid. If I'm in an instance and need to type something out in a hurry, then I'll shorten every friggin thing I can and still make it readable. But, I'm usually in vent with the people I do stuff with, so no need for that.
    Get out of my head! ):

    Funny story, I used to think (until I figured it out) that there were tons of rude people in this game. After transactions or any other time where I may need to say 'Thank You' the person responded with "yw". Now I'm thinking, "Yeah Whatever"??? HOW RUDE! '

    Although yw might as well be "yeah whatever" instead of "your welcome".
    Why not you paid your $15 right?
