What's up with this?

Recently while browsing my frequented forums (Jemsite, TGP, Anandtech, etc), I've noticed that people have started making every word end in y.

Ibanez = Ibby
Gibson = Gibby
Samsung = Sammy
Address = Addy
Transformer = Tranny

- just to name a few that come off the top of my head.

Granted, I have too much time on my hand to ponder about this , but why not just type the whole word?

Abreviations. Fewer charactors to type And I've noticed that it does tend to ANNOY the hell out of the so called ~grammar police~

Soo.......I guess you'll be needin to remove the 00 from the end of your username

Well, I'm all for abbreviations, but why can't one just abbreviate Gibson as Gib.,etc? IS the Gibby part necessary? Never mind the fact that Gibby is one less letter than Gibson.

These abbies are just annoying

I think that's the same way my sister-in-law talks to her 2 year-old.

Abbreviations with an "y" suck, "i" is the only true thing
