It's because you're too new! YWS chat doesn't let new members in for the first 24 hours, so they can get a feel for the site and don't have to be told about the rules so much when they first enter. :) YWS has some "odd" rules according to the rest of the Internet, because we're a writing site. So we don't allow shortened words and swearing (little siblings/parents can be reading over teenagers' shoulders), and ask for proper English. The staff figures that, after 24 hours looking around YWS, members would pick that up.

The rules, by the way, are right here if you want to read them in full before you get into chat!
