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.'

Examples:
Boys- Boiz
Girls- girlz, grlz, grrlz, gurlz
Mate- m8
Skater- sk8er
You- u
Are- r
Tonight- 2nite
Because- Bcuz

Et cetera.

Chatspeak is pretty much the Language of the Idiots. It is used by those too stupid/lazy to type properly.

A person{s} attempt at looking cool, or to save time by shortening words. Chatspeak is also used by people that have no idea how to spell in an attempt to communicate on the internet. People who use chatspeak rarely capitalize or use a period, they are extremely annoying to people that know how to spell, and generally only make friends or have conversations with other people that use chatspeak.

See annoying, retarded, stupid, irritating.
Chatspeak example:
Two, to, too - 2
For, thereFORe - 4
You - u
Are - r
Boy - boi
Skater - sk8er
What - wot
The - da

A pathetic attempt at looking cool and saving time. Useful for people who can't spare a third of a second, or morons who can't spell "Dude, got a quarter?" A disgrace to the english language and also almost every other language anyone ever came up with.
