rant: stupid people should not use instant messaging

This rant is about people who completely fail at instant messaging.

If you are a slow typer:

You fail.

If you expect someone else (i.e. the person you're chatting with) to hold up the entire conversation:

You fail.

If you are the question-question-question type but say nothing about yourself:

You fail.

If you use MSN:

You fail.

If you all of a sudden start typing really fast only when someone has ticked you off:

You fail.

If you have ever called someone "dude" in chat:

You fail.

If you use the same shortened misspelled crap-ass grammar on chat as you do when text messaging:

You fail. (You do have a full keyboard at your disposal so you have no excuse.)

If you start a conversation with a message that's more than 15 words long:

You fail. (Don't make me scroll..)

If you have ever typed "lol" in chat:

You fail.

If you have ever typed "LOL" as if it means something totally different than "lol":

You fail.

If your screen name contains "xxx" anywhere in it:

You fail.

If your screen name begins and ends with an "x":

You fail.

If your screen name begins with a number:

You fail.

If your screen name begins and ends with a number:

You fail.

If your screen name has a dash, period or underscore in it:

You fail.

If your screen name is an e-mail address:

You fail. (STOP USING MSN..)
