I occasionally use lol, force of habit. But people rarely actually laugh out loud when they say lol, so it is really pretty stupid. Not to mention ROFL. I'm pretty damn sure that it is impossible to type whilst rolling on the floor.

P.S: Radix, which school was that?

I use LOL pretty often, but often it's when I'm kinda chuckling, not actually laughing. Though too many months using binary has gotten me to contract lol as 5 (you binary users would understand). I use ROFL about once a year or so.

I believe that this 'internet speak' is a sign of the future of our language. I think it's stupid that people bother so much with vocabulary and grammar. Words are just words, language is a method of communication. If you can get your point across using as little bandwidth as possible, perhaps it's a good thing .

I believe Olde English, Arabic, and a few other languages used to take out vowels and spaces and a lot of other stuff that they added in recently just to make things look nicer. I don't think it's really that unhistorical to get rid of them again. Heck, most Arabs don't actually use vowels, it's the noobs who do.

Anyways, I thought I was the only one who didn't use contractions in text messages .

Muz, I very much doubt people in a couple of centuries time will walk down the street and shout "w00t! i r teh r0x0rzzz!!11 without getting in fear of being beaten up."

English language has evolved, you don't see "thou" or "thy" very much these days, however I doubt the English language would get that horrible.

Then again you could be right, I remember watching an episode of Futurama where they go on the internet, well, in the internet to be precise. It's a cyber world and chatrooms are actually alot of people inside a room, and geeks shouting "WHERE ARE ALL DEE FEMALES AT?!"

If that was true I'd wonder how porn sites will work... I wonder.

Nah, 1337 stuff is just a fad. There were similar ones earlier whihc we haven't retained. I mean nobody says 'groovy' except in a joking manner. If it's retained, as it might be online, it'll probably just have the same sort of status as olde english; just a throwback to something that didn't actually exist in the first place.

No offense guys but not only does no one care WHERE haxx0r talk came from, but arguing over it does not impress anyone. Wait about ten years and become an internet historian. *Then* it'll be impressive.

Haxx0r talk has definitely been done to death but it still makes me giggle. Probably because when I see it have a mental image of some little punk with a backwards baseball cap and a mouthful of gum on the other end.

The ultra-shorted talk like "omg lol u want 2 go out w/ me?" Is just disturbing to me because it gives me the mental image of a hick in an A-neck shirt and a John Deer cap with chewing tobacco pretending he's a nineteen year old girl from Virginia Beach.

 
Last time I had lobster, it reminded me of biology class. Except in biology class the professor didn't make you eat the frog when you were finished.

I don't use internet speak in text messages because my phone has a built in qwerty keyboard. And AOL is only contributing to acronyms like "lol" and "rofl", if you look on their site, they have a dictionary of those terms on it.

 
As a boy, I wanted to be a train. I didn’t realize this was unusual—that other kids played with trains, not as them.
