Thought before I crawl back into bed:
Does anybody accidentally write !!!1! anymore? Or has its use in internet sarcasm made it far too trendy, and the netspeak-teenies have been (subconsciously) forced to move onto other typos?

Checking with the arbiter of all things cool at my house, Liza tells me that once that net-type got its own generator, it wasn't cool anymore. Bulletins as events warrant.

OMG, if we steal ALL their typos and make them trendy, can we force them into literacy?

But then will literacy be netspeak?

Actually, my concern was whether we'd be able to understand each other in the interim.

!!!1! was uncol, then cool, and now is uncool again.

!1 and 1! are accidents. :D

Good point -- 1 in place of !, or a single extra character like 1!, are reasonable typos for even the non-aolteen among us!

Yes. 'Shift key' errors are only errors if they're in one direction - hit the key too soon, or release too late. Or, Worse Case Scenarion, fORGETTING yOUR cAP lOCK kEY iS oN. :p

Hee! I've taken to typing things in chat like

mpoetess: MY PIZZA IS BURNING

mpoetess: Er. Horrible capslock accident. No one rush to the oven to save it or anything.

Obviously you have not seen typical Singaporean/Malaysian net speak.

I was thinking it could also just be that I've drawn the tendrils of my reading inward in the past few years, so now I'm pretty much just reading my LJ and JF friendslists, and a few select mailing lists, and I'm just not seeing what's still out there, alive and kicking all over the place.

I have. Don't you love the flamewars over correcting other people's English? (I'm not Singaporean. My friend is. She drags me along to see brain-exploding blogs.)
