In some forums, SMS language is forbidden. You'll see a sentence like this:

Esto es un foro, no un p... móvil.

(perdón por la expresión, pero si lo buscas en un buscador, lo encontrarás )

Hasta existe un Comité Contra las Faltas Voluntarias y el Lenguaje SMS (CCFVLS).

I think they had a web page some time ago, but I think they haven't anymore

Here you can get some more information. I don't know if there is something similar in English:
