Well, for myself, I would advise learning to spell first.  This isn't twitter  ;)

Pretty much answers your question.

A book list, for more reading! Personally, if you're starting out and want a workbook, I'd recommend Scott Cunningham's Guide for the Solitary Practitioner, but I would definitely say to read it along with plenty of other books, as it's very opinion-based and has very little history in, sadly.

I think you have that backwards!

Since there is no limit to the "space" you have here to type in, using chatspeak is akin to posting in another language.  That makes it RUDE.  MANY people here are over SIXTY.  Myself included.  We don't care HOW long it taked us to type our points....and we can usually make them using somewhat proper capitalization, punctuation and structure.

In other words we're neither lazy nor in any sort of hurry.

So, how should WE, the majority of old codgers here, feel about YOUR understanding of OUR NON-"modern" ways?  Hmmm?

As well, you're on a site that deals with issues that range from moments to thousands of years old.  The Egyptians didn't carve chatspeak into their walls.  Plato, Aristotle, Tolstoy or Cunningham didn't write their books in it, either.  But then, I don't think that ANY of the aforementioned approached their respective endeavors with an eye towar speed OR being "kewl".

I'm interested in Wicca, too.  I have been studying it for more than thirty years.  I've read literally MILLIONS of words about it and nary a single one of them was in chatspeak.  Maybe it's only because the Spirit I encounter most is the spirit of Jim Beam.

Now....you were saying?

I'm not so sure that you have the concept of "respect" quite figured out.
You see, it works both ways.  And, like most other qualities, it can mend AND cut in both directions.

WE, as a group, do things a certain way.  YOU, walk in and do something we prefer to do without.  WE ask you to try and fit into OUR way.  YOU stamp your feet and go "all belligerent and junk".

So, WHO was disrespecting WHOM?

So far, I've counted three people who offered advice, not counting DM about the spelling.
Also,

As far as I can see, nobody is being disrespectful of how people type in certain forums. Everyone is just saying how we type here. It would be beneficial for you, I think, to just take everything said with a pinch of salt and respect the ways here as you would wish we respected the ways in a forum where it was.
If you haven't already, I would recommend reading this:

*In a forum where it was acceptable to use chat speak.
Sorry, I got a bit distracted :-p

Yeah.  Umm...Okay.

Have fun, but if people decide to give you a hard time, please don't take it up with the staff.

WE have asked you nicely.  If your typing "style" is such an important part of "who you are", we have to respect that.  Just don't count on US to defend it to or from others.

Have a nice day.
