I barely use a cell phone at all. I don't care to be constantly tethered to work/family/friends. I do not do the whole text messaging thing. I don't like the way the abbreviations have crept into formal writing, and grade those little bits of textspeak very harshly.
I also refuse to do it.
Not for fear that it'll make me a lazy writer. Because I hate it with a bloody purple passion.
I'm even more glad that I don't, now that law enforcement is clamoring to force cell phone companies store such data for each customer for at least two years, "just in case."
That's just creepy.
