People can misinterpret anything in text.Sarcasm or not.I was accused of having ulterior motives with my questions on another site yesterday.. weird!

It can be hard to be sarcastic in text unless people know your true feelings about the issue. Usually people will take it the way they want to.

So good reason not to use sarcasim in texting or typing, people need to hear and see sarcasim, not see it written.

(or at least laziness) or a,e,i,o,u but "sometimes" y, . also I don't like the term phonetics , why would a word be spelled in a way that the sound of the letters together don't form the desired word. phone =fon.

live or alive helps to make it right English is a combination of so many languages - German, latin, french. Each was the language of the time. So english is a big mixture. To bring it all together. What language would you rather use?

my keyboard can't express pronunciation which is weird

i'm having trouble replying without sarcasm and this is sincere

No. I think it's more a problem of political correctness pushing people to initiate kind of stupid questions and positions which stimulates sarcasm and cynicism.
