An older post pt 1.

Blasphemy

So there was this article in The Advertiser today that was talking about "Internet" language (at least the 23923920329 article they've done on this...)

They had taken comments from people's myspaces and used them as examples ie;


lol lol

yer ill get bak 2 u

lmao

xx


and translated them. Translation for the above was:



Laugh out loud. Laugh out loud.

Yes, I'll get back to you.

In my arrogant opinion.

Kiss kiss.

..... So let's just see that again.


lmao = in my arrogant opinion.


I am overwhelmed with disgust. So what the fuck does 'rofl' translate into then? Rape on fresh lawn?

Officially lost all respect for The Advertiser. Forever.
