Text messaging, or texting, refers to the exchange of brief written text messages between fixed-line phone or mobile phone and fixed or portable devices over a network. While the original term (see below) was derived from referring to messages sent using the Short Message Service (SMS) originated from Radio Telegraphy, it has since been extended to include messages containing image, video, and sound content (known as MMS messages).

1 Back then, the stupid either got hurt and learned their lesson or weeded themselves out. Now, it's OTHERS who get hurt, and the idiot sues because it's someone else's fault they lack common sense. I propose, if a person on a cell phone is being inconsiderate, that you return the favor. Not because they're talking on a cell phone, but things like closing the door on a person's face because they're absorbed in a call, almost walking into someone because they're not paying attention, etc. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 16, 2013, 1:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I've finally seen idiots texting while biking like you guy described. The first guy had both hands on the phone while on a bridge. The second was a kid that was doing it one-handed, but almost crashed into us because he was looking at the screen. "Distracted driving" is now against the law in my state and yet I still see it all the time. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 12, 2013, 7:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I'm not bothered by texting in general, but I really hate it when people text while driving, riding a bike, or doing something similar. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on February 18, 2013, 1:11 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
4 By all means, PLEASE ban texting while driving. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 14, 2012, 1:34 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 My main issue with texting, especially given that you can use it to text to (as an example) instant messenger contacts is the idea that you're always connected. The line between one's online life, work life, family life and personal life (to name several) is blurring. Whatever happened to being offline or at least in away mode? I can't help but think of Star Trek's Borg. It seems silly, but is everyone being connected via a technology powered form of telepathy as far removed from what we currently have as we think? How far do we take it? I love the Internet and computers but I also love being able to be offline for a while as long as I know I can get back online later. A message or two is fine, but when it's getting to the point where we're giving out friends/family a play by play of even basic events in our lives, I think it's going too far. Again, how far do we take it? Will we someday see texting as it is now as the good old days when technology and communication was simpler? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 1, 2012, 12:41 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Forget driving for a minute, I'd also like to ban texting in public, because the sight of someone mindlessly staring at their whateverG DUMBphone mashing buttons while completely unaware of their surroundings makes me want to take their gadgets and smash them all!!! Over their heads!!! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on December 29, 2011, 7:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I don't have a problem with strict laws in regard to texting, but I start having a problem when complete prohibition of talking on a cell phone even while hands free is suggested. That's the problem I have with agencies like the EPA or the NHSB. They overstep their bounds and create laws that restrict our freedoms. Smoking is a disgusting habit, but it should be up to each and every public place to decide whether to allow it or not. Also, our country allows a teenager at 18 to vote for officials and fight in war, but not to drink alcohol. I think moving the age down to 18 would help curb things like binge drinking in college students. I think when you restrict freedoms you cause more problems than when you don't. The failure that is the war on drugs is the best example of this. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 16, 2011, 6:14 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I am totally for strict laws against texting while driving. But the NTSB is taking this too far by proposing bans on using hands-free devices in vehicles. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 15, 2011, 11:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Ah texting. Another way for we behind the wheels to be distracted. I mean why not throw another reason to multitask while driving. Change the radio stations, put on make up, come/brush hair, shave, eat a big greasy cheeseburger, drink HOT anything, call/text your buddy/girl on the all important topic(S) of that very minute. I remember those old Crash Test Dummy commercial. But I would alter it to (you can learn alot from a dummy, pay the F**K attention) -- Submitted By: (Jp) on December 14, 2011, 9:19 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
10 No, DolFan, You are NOT the last holdout on the planet. I'm not about to get one of those gizmos that make it look like one's getting spastic on a cigarette case. Scary thing is that I know that more and employers and even colleges are REQUIRING their employees and students use those things. And I recently got a flu shot and they asked me if I wanted to sign up to get my medical stuff texted to me. WHY are employers, medical and educational authorities trying to push having very private info sent through thin air which could easily be intercepted by hackers? Only if my job ever makes it compulsory, will I break down and get one. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 14, 2011, 4:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I may be the last holdout on the planet, but I am a diehard anti-texter!!! Seriously, when friends who invited me over starting texting other people when I'm there, it's gotten way out of hand. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on December 13, 2011, 7:28 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Just like cell phones, some people are using them 24/7. I have even seen people texting while riding a bike. That's a 1000 Ways to Die episode waiting to happen. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 13, 2011, 12:01 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I'd agree excecpt that the only grunts to be made will be when folks wreck their cars while texting when they should have both eyes on the road and both hands free for the steering wheel and controls. Even those folks who text off the road look like they're playing with cigarette cases! Hello, humanity survived how many millions of years without these gadgets so why can't folks now endure even ten minutes without 'em? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 12, 2011, 12:48 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Just one more "technical advancement" that has de-socialized society. Soon, humans only "verbal" communication will be grunts. -- Submitted By: () on December 11, 2011, 10:38 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
