There's nothing like ungrammatical or misspelt English to get Middle England frothing at the mouth. Today's Mail on Sunday received dozens of responses to its article concerning posters on netiquette and internet safety which have been put up in London schools. Typical readers' reactions were: 'a total waste of time, money and space', 'pathetic', 'laziness' and 'load of rubbish'. The title of the poster was 'Top tips for pupils: safe surfing at home and at school', written in standard English, then there were nine tips, basically saying 'be careful', written in text-speak.
I couldn't understand most of it, either, but then I'm not one of the target audience. Moreover, these tips relate to behaviour in chatrooms and when using the internet, so they are written in the language of chatrooms and the internet. The kids aren't being taught history or English literature using text-speak, nor are they being advised to write their exams or apply for jobs using this form of language. This is an extra resource; it's not replacing text books or standard-English-speaking teachers.
