Thank you for this post. I've been struggling with this myself as I set up a ning (private for security) network for our primary school. The children absolutely love it and use it almost as a safe chatroom. (Parents like the communication with the school and ability to check on homework/classwork/download letters and dinner menus etc.) But I have had to insist on no text chat as well. We have talked in class about appropriate use of registar and language and agreed 'txt' should be for private communication and is inappropriate on web/blog/ning where messages/posts can be seen by all, including speakers of EFL.
