§2.5 Use coherent language and punctuation
Always strive to write in an intelligible manner. The use of caps, exclamation marks and language should all be within reason. Excessive use of caps, exclamation marks, or ”chat” in the ER forums is undesirable.


In section 2.5 of the terms of use, what is the meaning of the term "chat"?

This is just an educated guess - but I think it means no 'msn speak'. Like the kind of messages I sometimes get from my children:

'omg mum!! tacp!! i wz like wtf?!! roflmao!! kk, ttyl!!'

Which makes perfect sense to me but can be a mystery to anyone who doesn't speak fluent teenager.

Thanks, Raven. There are days when I feel really old.

I'd agree with that - if it's written like a text message your mother would take 3 years to decipher - it's chat speak! :P
