If I ever have a child, and their teacher teaches them to spell like this, I will shoot the teacher and blow up his/her university.

Simplified spelling? WTF are these people thinking? There’s a difference between writing shorthand appropriate for the mode of communication, and just being a lazy writer. You don’t use “u”, “R” or “c” in email. You have a full keyboard, use it. On phones, that’s not always the case, forgiveness required. And if they want to go into phonetics, half their words are still spelled wrong.
