What about all these?... IMHO, IMO, IME, YMMV, SWMBO, WAF, IIRC, OMG etc.
I notice them here frequently and even use a few of them sometimes.
To my knowledge only OMG is text speak (and I'm not even sure about that one), the rest of them pre-date the WWW, never mind texting. They're just shorthand for commonly used phrases, text speak is leaving out all the vowels and using numbers instead of words.
Indeed. Not aware of too many teenage chav texters who express their humble opinions about anything.
