Anyway… or thereabouts

Dear Reader,

I saw something horrible. Even to this moment I’m not certain how I found out what it actually means. Let me show you:

anyway

Can you see, at first glance, what’s meant here? If so, you are better at deciphering mutilated language than I am.

Who needs it an-y-way.

This clearly is an attempt to be popular in using as few letters as possible, like people who substitute ‘you’ by a mere ‘u’, and ‘are’ by a simple ‘r’. In this case however, the attempt fails entirely. Not only becomes the text highly illegible, it’s also longer than writing anyway. Only one character (a space) longer, but it’s longer.

Why do people want to make things so confusing?
