When people say "I'm balling!" Do they understand what it means? Why would someone spell it like that? (Not that bawling is much better, but why would someone think it was balling?)

Well, I know that! But I'm wondering what their logic is for spelling it that way. Maybe because it sounds like ball-ing?

yeah, undoubtedly... it's really amazing how people choose to spell words, I can't seem to come up with a good example right now, but it is all over the place.

dude, I saw a girl spell it "higher" yesterday, instead of "hire"... and she did it multiple times, in the same post.

people are just dumb.

People spell it that way cuz they are rebelling against the grammar nazis.

I wish they would rebel at something else, 'cause it just makes them look stupid!

They're rebelling against smart people at the risk of looking stupid!!

What makes it worse is that these people defend themselves by saying it's easier to type that way!

And if you type normally, you don't have to find creative ways of spelling! I can type just as fast, if not faster, than people who say 2 instead of to/too/two!

I was looking for the other post she made (and probably deleted) - some other girls were gently chastising her for spelling like that and she got really mad and called everybody douchebags. :D

BAAAAHAHAHAHAHHAAA! I've wondered this myself many times. One time, an LJ'er told me she was "balling" and I told her she was lucky.
