Chatspeak, aka netspeak. This is a form of speech in which one shortens words and replaces the letter "s" with the letter "z" in an effort to save time and look cool. Chatspeakers also rarely use capitalization or correct punctuation.
Chatspeakers are generally looked down on by people who can actually spell and who have enough self-respect to type out a real sentence.
Chatspeak can never be considered 'literate.'

When people think it's cool to shorten words when they type things on IM, message boards, etc. Newsflash: It's not cool. Don't do it. Instead of just saying "I'm an idiot!" you can just type in chatspeak and it will basically mean the same thing.

Also known as webspeak, chatspeak is basically an illiterate way of typing, and a way to massacre a language. Shortening words (such as you to u), insisting on ignoring captials, making words numbers, (such as 2 or 4) and not using endmarks are all parts of chatspeak. For most people it annoys them shitless, but certain people insist.

The shortening of words and adding of numbers, usually used on an instant messenger service, that makes you look incredibly stupid. Usually makes no sense, and is hard to decipher. Rarely paired with correct spelling and punctuation. Also known as idiotspeak.
