    SMS Lingo NOT Allowed in PEx

    In an effort to make PEx more reader-friendly, we would like to encourage everyone to spell their words properly when posting in the forums. It does not matter whether you are posting in Filipino, English or Taglish -- we only ask that you spell your words correctly.

    Starting June 26, 2006 (Monday) at 12:01 AM, we will be strictly implementing this new rule. We will no longer allow SMS lingo within the message areas. PExers who post using SMS lingo after the said date will have their PEx account disabled for three (3) days. Repeat offenders will be banned.
