    ^ Yeah. They bash new cartoons on GameFAQs all the time, and then people are like "Gad dammit, not another topic like this."


    Ha, ha, that's how I'm like too. I'm sick of topics like that.

    I don't know if this is a fad, but when people post in threads and use a lot of jargon in their post.

    thank you *bows*

    / yeah, using things like Lol can be okay, unless it's used like pronounciation. then it's really hard to tell if you're actually funny or not. AM I FUNNY!? PLEASE SAY I'M FUNNY!

    but FTW makes no sense, i know it means For The Win, but why??

    Shock images like Goatse which are now stored at some crap site called Last Measure. Internet raids and hackings, by the 420 Chans and 7 Chans , which have gone too far and have messed up many websites, including My Space. My Space itself, just because I don't care for it. Too many damn perverts and weirdos on there.

    Meme speak or Chan speak like what I mentioned on another board. Certain sites and people that think that by bad mouthing , flaming or ripping on another site will make you want to go there. I don't want any dealings with any site that inflates itself to make itself look good by belittling other sites.

    A pet site called Misticpets has been especially bad by encouraging members and some staffers to behave in this way at Virtual Pet List forums and DA. And their site isn't even to the public yet.

    And certain stupid memes like Longcat, Duckroll, Copy Pasta or Bawwww

    I got called a "Valley Girl Bitch" for using LOL in a Seattle Mariners fan forum. That was trippy.:eek:
    "Make a move across the rubicon......future's knocking at your door......take your time and choose the road you want......opportunity is yours."

    - From the 1983 song "Rubicon" by Journey

    I thought LOL, BTW, FWIW, etc..were mainstream internet lingo. Something you could say just about anywhere.

    I dont even read alot of stuff on the net...

    myspace I'm never on or never look. No offense to anyone, but some people look so desperate and sad, begging people to be friends, "collecting friends".

    I see youtube, and youtube comments as the standard for internet slang. If its on there, its probably everywhere else too.

    Some of them are funny and creative, like the face sayings...


    o_O ...stuff like that, lol. Doesnt that mean impressed or wow?

    Some of the shorthand is annoying...you cant even read it or you need a detective to figure it out...

    Cn u rilly rd w m sayyin rt nw....ts is phat playa....n dbt!! dnt b h8'en!!

    AnD tHiS StUFf iS ToTaLly CrAzY?? [email protected]@K!!

    And some of it looks like you're trying too hard..

    ROFLOL, u got pwned!!! U r a noob!!!!

    In 5 or 10 years, some of this stuff will definitely look like a fad. Like fads from the 80's.

    I auctually like internet fads like "All your base are belong to us", because its cool to see how popular they get and how many different ways theyre used.

    There is no interenet fad more annoying to me than saying no homo. I mainly see it on hiphop messageboards. Those boards are full of homophobic people. They say no homo to the craziest things.

    All the cool Internet speak. I swear it's terrible, I try to listen to some of it and it's like "What is he saying?"

    Trying to collect as many friends on Myspace as possible. Let's face it, most of these people you never met in person, are fake, and are begging you to be your friend. The website itself also represents a problem. It's a center for emo freaks and ones who lack an ounce of intelligence. Terrible layout, horrible design, etc.

    Blame most of the crap on 4Chan.org. It's the cesspool of the internet.
    Now that I think of it, most of the people on LiveJournal are terrible, too.
    Then there are people that ruin good movies, TV shows and book series with relationshipping and fan fiction.

    Does anyone remember Neopets? They had all kinds of the worst internet fad including spam,flaming others,and much much more.

    When I first became a member there,it pissed me off seeing n00bodies being ugly
    to each other,Adamit and Dumba abusing their power while Doug Doughnut sits off his ass stroking his pet Farteralley on the chin.My first thought's were to Neopets: Oh dear God no!!Its a fairytale land rip-off which kiddies like to go la la and prance around like idiots.I was so glad I quit then.

    You should watch more gameshows.
    Namely, the Hollywood Squares. It was basically tic-tac-toe with celebrities and trivia questions. The idea was to answer the questions to put your X or O on the board, and get three in a row.

    The two common lingos on it were "for the block", when you picked a square just to prevent the other player from getting tic-tac-toe, and "for the win" when you picked a square in order to get tic-tac-toe.

    "For the win" means "this is the square that will win me the game", and carries an air of finality to it. When used properly online, it is in conjunction with presenting an idea which you believe will "win" the discussion.
