I post everything via email to Posterous, which then cross-posts to a few other sites/feeds. I never know when to use HTML or plain text, because either method seems to yield unexpected errors, such as broken links and randomly-inserted line breaks. When I catch these errors, I always correct them on Posterous, but not on my other sites. It also causes picture posts to be squished or spread out all over the page. Apologies for any annoyance this may cause.
Also, what is the correct way to write this term:
· Cross post?
You tell me, I don’t know. Language rules are just going right out the window these days, thanks to text messaging and “blurb-based” social media.
“Netspeak” and “txting” abbreviations are for use ON THE NET WITH OTHER NETSPEAKERS and WHILE SENDING TEXT MESSAGES. They don’t read well in a narrative and they sound stupid in live conversation, unless you’re doing it as a joke. Actually, that sounds stupid too, but at least it’s stupid on purpose, and not because you’re too lazy to speak complete words.
It’s called “conversation”. Remember that stuff? It’s where two or more people arrange whole words into complete, understandable sentences and then vocalize/write them in order to exchange ideas and impressions. Try it sometime, it’s quite fulfilling.
