Oh no, I can deal with the "old" ones as I was a chatter for a long time before texting got big and an MMO Gamer where speed and brevity can be essential. But I use those particular words all the time. I think it's more the mixing of chat speak and l33t speak, such as you would see with the LOL Cats. I can haz cheezbrgr. Yes, they are hilarious but sometimes the spelling drives me nutz. Is it really that much harder to hit the "s" key then the "z" key?
