There's nothing in that about you sing prop, er, English.
I suggest adding the following:
Q: I CAN USE LOLSPEAK IN DISCUSHUNS ON MALEING LIST PLS?
A: DO NOT WANT. NOT FUNNEE. RLY, STOP NAO PLS
Q: What about TLAs?
A: Fine. Even if it means we mistake Douglas N. Adams for a bunch of
molecular DNA, or Mr Richard Stallman for root mean squared.
Q: What about txtish abbreviations, like "u're" for "you are"?
A: Absolutely not.
(That's assuming that norms and accepted standards do not, in
themselves, violate the meta-norm of "there's even more ways to
freakin' do it, and any statements of preference are merely very
noisy subjective opinions")
