If u cn rd this quickly, gd 4 u

If u cn rd this quickly, gd 4 u | SYDNEY (Reuters) - "Mobile phone text-message abbreviations and simplifications are not ruining our spelling, but they do take much longer to read and understand than conventional English, a small Australian study has shown."

I knew there was a reason I disliked txt-speak. It's only real positive is making it quicker for the sender to type. Ever since I started texting I've always typed out whole words. It may take a bit longer but at least I know the receiver will understand what I'm saying.

More or less.
