Same with:

I hope the Rigners will somehow change it to start with capitals

But think, what if brb is used in the middle of a sentence...

I'm gonna Be right back.
Going to get a drink, Be right back.

These will look weird then. Perhaps brb should stay be right back and Brb should become Be right back. That way you can decide yourself if it should have a capital or not.

Why not actually type out "be right back"?

sometimes you need to let people know fast that you are not at your keyboard, like when the doorbell rings, or your kids pull over the christmas tree, or whatever.

I can think of few situations in life that would not justify the use of that precious extra quarter-second that it takes to type your words out fully.

some people type fast. I can type "be right back" almost as fast as typing "brb".

others type very slowly. very very slowly in some cases for that matter. for those people, brb is a godsend when the phone rings, the doorbell rings, a kid comes in with a bloody nose, etc. - because otherwise it's just not typing anything at all, just leaving.

I always wanted to start a flag with the initials BRB, so people couldn't abbreviate it.

The point made in the OP was that if you type "Brb" then it should be transformed to "Be right back" instead of "be right back". And people have said the same of "Gg" and "Gl".

<slight derail>Sorry for doing this again shur (the derail), but I'm going to throw out that I'd like to be able to turn on and off this filter. Because when I type omg!!!, or ty, that's how I want it read. If I wanted it read in any other manner, then I would have typed it in that manner. </slight derail>

Well, just like the naughty word filter, just because you have it set one way, doesn't mean that everyone else will.

Yeah, it has happened more than once that I've been made to say something like:

Ljamethyst laughs is the best flag ever!

I'm almost sure that nobody uses 'gg'(good game) and 'gl'(good luck) in the middle of a sentence. I say 'Good luck' and 'Nice game' but I admit it would be easier to just type 'gl' and 'gg'. Most people also use 'Be right back' although I think it's not correct (I think it's I will be right back, or something).

About the Thank ye part, you can either:
*Type 'thank ye'
*Type 'thx' (which shows as 'thanks')
