About overused internet words/sayings.
I think my favorite is the girl who says her H hates LOL cats because cats could never be that stupid, and that they have perfect spelling and grammar.
caffinated_tulip:Best. Thread. Ever.
No, seriously, I want to monitor myself now. Thank god they don't hate LOL. Because I did when I first started posting, but then I realized that even though a sarcastic-ish "ha." is more my style, lol gets the point across better. Maybe.
I'll admit, I'm an offender. I use a lot of internet slang, when I'm on the internet.
However, the only one that really bothers me is tl;dr. First, because it's an improper use of a semicolon, second because it's just a diick thing to post. If you're not going to read something, then just dont read it.
greenclown:Actually, that semicolon is correct. Like someone said in the original thread, it's to make a point: don't post a wall of text.
I had never heard of TL;DR until one of my professors said it in class this past semester. I agree that it makes it's point.
Really? I thought a colon would be more appropriate there or even a comma. I could easily be wrong, I'm not the best with grammar.
1. I love that there is a debate about punctuation going on in this thread.
2. P&CE is my new favorite board to lurk at. /creepy lurker
Ok, I'm either really naive or live under a rock, because I can't for the life of me figure out what tl;dr is. No matter what way I turn my head.
ETA: Ok, I read the thread that was linked from above. Too long; didn't read. I have honestly never seen that before - on here or in real life. I was slightly dissapointed because I thought it would be something dirty.
