Samuel’s Blog (not quite weekly) Poll: Proper English In Text Messages

August 18th, 2008 at 07:48am

As tempted as I am to run a guaranteed vote-grabber poll along the lines of “How interested are you in the Olympic Games”, I will restrain myself and run a more interesting poll.

In the last few days I’ve been wondering whether I am alone in my quest to use proper English in text messages and instant messaging. With a few minor exceptions, I tend to use full sentences and words, plus punctuation, in text messages and instant messaging. I’m fairly certain that, in doing so, I’m placing myself in a very small minority, but I’d be interested to see whether this is true. As such, the poll for this week:

In text messages and instant messaging you use:

Total Votes: 67
Started: August 18, 2008

The last poll’s results:

The recent spate of aeroplane issues has:

Total Votes: 21
Started: August 1, 2008

I can’t be bothered going through the logs to check, but I’d say that it’s a fairly good bet that somebody was having a bit too much fun finding ways to vote multiple times in that poll.

Results of previous polls can be seen by clicking here.
