Wut's the deel with badd grammer?

We understand the internet has provided our lives with several short-cuts and simplifications that life would not contain.  However, even in an age of text messaging and instant messaging, is it so necessarily for the basic rules of grammar and spelling to be flagrantly ignored?

We've noticed a recent trend with Myspace and Facebook users.  For some reason, the trend to spell words improperly has arisen, and it's not even in a way that makes sense.

For example, someone on Tregg's friend list spelled the word "pic" which is already a bastardization of the word picture with two C's.  That's right, "picc."  We can't, for the life of us, understand this lackadaisical disregard for the English Language.

We use "brb" and even some sho wo gems like probs or maybs, but why add an extra letter to the end of a word?  Use your multi-thousand dollar collegiate educations and buck the ignorant trend of sounding like a Valley Girl on online communique.

Word power.
