I'm not really sure but I seriously think our current batch of upcoming player lack talent to compete in the international scene. Regardless of how many tournament they were sent to, these player train with LCW, HH and KBH everyday. Shouldn't their skill would have at least match HH and KBH who have been the butt of jokes in the international level.
Its kinda something like Simon Santosa. He have been around for a while but cannot progress further (I could be wrong but his coach made the same statement) to match top player like Peter, Chen Jin, LCW and maybe even Park.

Actually, it's not so much sms language but direct translation from mandarin/chinese to English. More similar to msn/irc language.
All things considered, limsy's (& our other chinese educated members) is not bad for those chinese educated, some of the same age cant even understand a sentence in English, let alone joining an English language forum & typing sentences in English.

Sometimes sms languages can be misunderstood
So ... What is "OT"?
Some of us do not know it.
The main problem is sometimes sms languages can be misunderstood.
Let's examine some here;
Single letters can replace words
- be becomes b
- see becomes c
- are becomes r
- you becomes u
- why becomes y
- ate becomes 8
- for becomes 4
- to or too becomes 2
- one or won becomes 1
- ate becomes 8, so:
- great becomes gr8
- mate becomes m8
- later becomes l8r or l8a
- skate becomes sk8
- skater becomes sk8r
- tomorrow becomes 2mro
- for or fore becomes 4, so:
- before becomes (combining both of the above) b4
- therefore becomes thr4
- Your and You're both become ur or yr

2009 India Open: Hafiz Hashim has made it to the Semi-Finals
Congratulations to Hafiz Hashim. He has made it to the Semi-Finals at the 2009 India Open.
BAM should be happier too.
Friday 27-Mar-2009 Quarter-Finals Results:
Muhammad Hafiz HASHIM  [MAS] defeated [INA] Andre Kurniawan TEDJONO 
21-18, 14-21, 21-16 in 52 minutes
Who will be interested in predicting the outcome of HH's next match?
Saturday 28-Mar-2009 Semi-Finals Match:
Long CHEN [CHN] -vs- [MAS] Muhammad Hafiz HASHIM 
Well, I thought Chen Long's form has been excellent at this tournament. But, now that Hafiz Hashim has come this far, I would think that Hafiz is more determined to fight harder to get to the Finals.
Prediction: 2009 India Open Mens Singles Final to be Hafiz Hashim -vs- Taufik Hidayat

All I can say, the warning is ABSOLUTELY effective.
03-28-2009, 07:56 AM #148
Effective, yes and hope BAM will continue to boost up players. They should know by now that monetary form incentive isn't always the best..
Well done, Hafiz. The final is indeed your good work and you deserved this.
