"teh menz" has become a common and increasingly annoying term in P&R.

The entire letter 'Z' should be banned from general use. Only those who have demonstrated proficiency in the use of standard English and are duly certified as 'Z' licensed users should be allowed to use it. That would make this forum a 'zebra' free zone.

You may, however, apply to me for a learner's permit. Your application should contain a paragraph of at least three cogent sentences devoid of attempts at infantile cuteness via unoriginal misspellings.

I think the more important question would be, what compels you to care?

Apparently the ancient question, 'If you give a monkey a typewriter, will he eventually spell a word,' remains unanswered.

I can get away with it. Simply because I don't confuse "teh" and "the", "haz" and "has", "u" with "you" and so on. When I use such a gross abuse of the written word, I do so on purpose. And I don't intend to do it enough to dilute the point I want to make with it.

I'm still an idiot, though. I just do it differently.
