I think that for the most part, I do.. but I am much more cautious with word choice, as subtle humor and sarcasm are lost so easily though text.

Too true. I need to be more cautious. Or start using face icons more often.

I think so, for the most part. I'm sure some intonation is left out in print, though, of course.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 4:35:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ya it's pretty damn close to how I speak.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 4:37:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can type really fast.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 4:41:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really, I speak much less formally than the way I type online.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 4:56:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm a gestures person, so I find it difficult to convey ideas through text. So I guess that would be a 'no'

I laughed. What has that even to do with the question?

No not really, I guess I do sometimes. But as mentioned sarcasm and subtle humor is lost in text very easily. If I'm sarcastic I kinda try to over mention it. So people can understand.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 4:59:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
of course.

Seconded.

I type somewhat in the manner I would speak. I use smileys to convey nuances and subtleties, making them very much less subtle, but they're not lost, at least.

lmao, yeah i do =)
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 8:40:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sometimes

I think I'm more polite in person.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 9:09:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well I tend to joke more in person, and I'm not as concise. But the tone is basically the same.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/15/09 - 9:15:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, except I don't swear when I speak.

I try to but i agree that it is hard to convey sarcasm at times.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 1:08:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Most of the time I just write however I would say it, but like what most people have mentioned, it's hard to get the subtle humor, sarcasm etc. through it.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 1:40:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, apart from the abbreviations like OMG and I cuss here more than I do offline, than yeah, I type as I would speak.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 1:44:20 AM EST (GMT-5)


ooh, I forgot about that- Yeah.. I cuss a lot more here than in person, too. I don't know why. I hardly ever curse, in my daily life. Almost never ever!
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 1:58:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
And you don't cuss too often here either.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 2:12:12 AM EST (GMT-5)

But it's about 5000% more than in person.. such a difference!
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 2:24:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, the way I type is usually very much how I speak in real life.
Unless it's something I put a lot of thought into, which you can't do very un-awkwardly in real life.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 9:21:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm pretty much the same both here and in person.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 3:31:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pretty much entirely, yeah.
13 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 2/16/09 - 3:33:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think I mostly do, unless it makes NO sense at all.
