Importance of Advertising
Sometimes people just write incomprehensible English comments here.
lol is a dutch word
Internet English is used by lazy, uneducated people.
Firewall is a term much older than the internet, originally, albeit uncommonly used to describe walls constructed to stop the spread of furnace fires through a building, then through a ship, then out of the engine compartment of your car

Can I use this for our video essay ? PLEAS :((
I love these videos!
Um didn't Murphy Brown host a news show called FYI….and wasn't Murphy Brown a tv character from before there was internet?
My parents taught me a lot of these supposed internet abreviations when I was young to help me take notes in class
We loved this video so much we featured it in on our blog.
Thanks for keeping us entertained and informed with your excellent whiteboard animations!
How unfortunate. I'll miss people knowing how to spell.
i agree in a half and half. there's a lot of grammar freaks now in youtube so…no one types so…dumb anymore. But if someone spells grammer, instead of grammar, and you make a big fuss, then your over-reacting. I mean it's youtube not school, and it's only one character off.
maybe we don't say how are you because you don't have to ask. If a person is moaning or crying, wouldn't it be stupid to ask happily "Hello, how are you?" but the two last lines have nothing to do in my words. I only say "err" because I have a losss for words.
Nothing really, I am just being a snobby Brit, haha!
What's wrong with 'Hey guys, what's up'?
if people just use the internet 2 talk instead of talk talk, then UG2BK
The video is about changing the language by introducing NEW words. Firewall is not a new word, and the sense in which it is used re the internet clearly relates to its real-world usage: a barrier to prevent passage. Many words have different shades of meaning depending on context. The button of a mouse is different than a sewing button, but to say that "button" is therefore a new word when referring to a mouse, is nonsensical. The word is borrowed from another context, but is not new to English.
I agree with you, but there's worse- the infinite number of videos on you tube that start with the words 'Hey guys, what's up' – that has to be the most overused and IMHO- ill-placed Americanism. What happened to "Hello, how are you?", it's a shame to reduce everything to the dumbest level, you don't need to be Shakespeare to create a sentence that doesn't y'know- whatever- like- er- y'know- I'm like- kind of- never read a book…
I'd rather people still know how to spell. In my high school, which has won all sorts of awards for excellence in education, I have the pleasure of peer editing rough drafts that appear to have been written by people who are nearly illiterate.
I don't know about you, but I'd enjoy a future where people didn't type like "O hay, wutz up? Du u wnt 2 go 2 th muv-E's w me? Bcuz if u dnt wnt 2 ill b vry sd :(( if u cnt tll, im acshualy vry smart. i jst appr rther dum thx 2 th intrnt. Kthxbi:)"
Love the beard and afro @ 0:11.

@techwiz81 Since Old People. The joke about the mother who thought it meant lots of love, so she sent the text "grandma just died LOL".
Words like "epic", "fail", "awesome"
i'm not sure whether i like the information or just your voice
The metal separating your engine and the dash in a car is called a firewall.
"Firewalls" have been in documented existence since at least the Second World War, when they were used in both England and Germany to limit fire damage from bombing
i love this video 😀
