I so enjoyed this example of hyper-English, felt it needs a new moniker, like "url-speak" or "url-lang" or something.
Additionally, all language requires some forms of rules for everyone to understand. Additionally, specialized languages pop-up to encourage non-comprehension by non-professionals or 'outsiders' (I've seen it in corp USA (corp-speak or suit-speak), in MMORPG'ing, and of course texting/chatting (Emoticon/Smileys doesn't accurately represent the new abbreviated language IMHO).
Any ideas on rules/parameters that might enhance effective communications with these new-speaks?
