I don't get it

Could someone please, please, please tell me why so many blogs I read are written by people who shop at stores like M@cy's and get their coffee from places like $tarbucks?

I don't understand that.

Edit 12/22: I don't know why I thought people would understand what I wrote. But what I was really wanting to know, is why people use the @ instead of "a" and the $ instead of "s" when they write the names of companies. I can't figure it out.

If it makes you feel any better I shop at walmart...and get my coffee at walmart...hmmm....EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE, I like to be treated to some kind of flavored something at Starbucks...but I could probably count on 2 hands the number of times I've been there in my life!

Just wanted to share!

I think they do it so that when people google those names they don't reach their blogs. If that helps.

Apparently it makes people cool to spell words with symb0ls or some such n*n$en&e...

I thought you had a problem with Macy's and Starbucks and I was gonna say "Hey! I LIKE Starbucks. Wher else can I go for Pumpkin Coffee at 4am!" Go ahead, call me a yuppie!

I'm glad you put the edit in... Pretty scary that I read the post and DIDN'T NOTICE the symbols. I must be used to it and just block it out. :)
