Due to the profile of this blog, from now on I will not be allowing FanPosts filled with text message shorthand appropriate for cell phones in the main body of a FanPost.
Shorthand is appropriate only in comments, and then only when using a cell phone or other mobile device. I understand that not everybody is a touch typist, and I am not talking about grammar or style here. All I ask is that every FanPost be written in the English language so that others may properly enjoy and comment on your thoughts.
I have updated the Community Guidelines accordingly, and if anyone hasn't read them lately, there have been a couple of minor updates this year.
Thank you all for reading and writing on A Sea of Blue!
[UPDATE] Okay, Chirop reminded me cleverly that common abbreviations are fine, like ... WTF, LOL, ROFL, etc., in comments. What I really mean are cell phone stuff like "gd by 2 u" and stuff like that. I'll update the guidelines accordingly, but mainly this is directed at FanPosts, not comments.
[UPDATE 2] All new members, please, please read the Community Guidelines.
