Your site is very interesting--it is a something that we all experience/or witness in everyday language, but not necessarily something we think about! I am a student at Iowa State University, and I came across your page while looking for resources on a linguistics project I am doing involving Internet chatters. Might you recommend any on-line resources about the chatters use of language?
I regret to say that I cannot help you much with respect to Internet chatters. I have never really engaged in a chat session myself (once or twice as a silent observer and that's about all I could dare...), so the first I knew there might be any coincidence between FPs and chat was through visitor's feedback! At present, I have not made any study of them, so I really don't know where there are any online or offline references. Probably you should try the major search engines and directories. However, you might also try these topical directories:
