That right there should be evidence enough for people to use FULL AND MEANING FULL words for their code. Is it really that much more effort to type a few extra letters.

 

Better yet - now we can randomize variable names without impeding code readability, as lnog as the frsit and lsat cahracetrs are in the rghit palce wink.png

 

That said there is an anti-argument to this - ridiculously long variable and function names lead to extremely long code lines (think business java code with getCustomerFormAndIDFileSecureTransactionDBConcurrent() methods) which are difficult to read, not to mention print. So a balance needs to be achieved somehow.
