Am I no longer a grammar stiff?

I used to be a pretty big grammar stiff - going back to when I was editor of my high school newspaper. People speaking like they do in IMs and text messages used to drive me nuts. But time heals all wounds....

I realized this when one of our client's main statistics uses "thru" as in "drive-thru". It always drove me nuts that people invented a new spelling; surely saving twelve inches of neon tubes wasn't worth looking like a moron.

So today I was writing up a slide and changed it to "through." But alas grammar just doesn't rub me the way it used to. I changed it back. Thru it is. What it is, yo.
