    Is that meant to be a T? Texting crackdown? Or perhaps a new word? I can’t keep up.
    Today I tried to text my daughter and thought I’d written Becky, and it changed it to Wacky!

    I guess it’s a crackdown on people texting each other about those archaic party drugs and tranquilizers…quaaLUDES.

  4. Text messages are just preLUDES to more dumbing down of a once literate population.

    Maybe they use that spelling to avoid being caught out by the censors who keep our email and text traffic. Ha! xx 🙂

  6. My most recent newspaper atrocity: “It struck a cord….” Really?

  7. Hit it hard enough and it breaks. That’s probably what happened at the news pooper.
