Many BBC broadcasters now regularly pronounce police as 'pleece'. That doesn't pleeze me
It's quite common for the G in BirminGham to be
Even by BBC announcers.
Surely not G but H?

Are we talking about lazy language here or colloquialisms? I think there's a distinction.
I find acronyms in forum posts more annoying. (Fine when texting, lazy when posting.) There's also an assumption the reader can decipher the acronym. I've read a few that have left me stumped.
Hardware: Panasonic TX-P50VT65B (calibrated); Cambridge Audio Azur 651BD; Yamaha RX-A810; Teac PD-H600; PS3; B&W 601 & 600LCR (series 3); Q Acoustics QAV (rear)
Furniture and Accessories: BLOK Classix 3000 Oak AV Cabinet; Atacama Nexus 6 (atabite metal filled); 3D3 A1112
95%+ of my posts are made on my iPhone. Surely that's equivalent to texting and therefore I'm allowed to use the odd acronym?

Don't get me started on smileys.
I guess so, though now I'll have to castigate you for owning an iPhone! (Cue outrage from Apple junkies. )
For the record, my dumbphone's awful, though I'm consistently underwhelmed by that kind of gadgetry.
To be fair I probably overuse emoticons.
I need a smartphone in order to have diary / calendar sync, to have access to email in the day and also to certain work websites. After that, I'm not really bothered by anyone's particular choice of phone.
All of which is fair enough. To be honest, I use my phone for talking and texting. I hardly ever use the smart features. That's just me, though, and I can fully appreciate that internet access on the move is very useful, especially in certain professions.
I'm really objecting to brand frenzy. I find crazed behaviour over trivialities and superficialities disturbing, not that I'm suggesting you fall into such a category.

I never used to bother much about such things. However, there are two that really annoy me these days
Namely, soz and skewz (not even sure if that would be the correct spelling buy hey ho)
I suspect it's because both are supposedly used in politeness and if you are indeed sorry or wish to say excuse me, kindly put in a semblance of effort.
