The Truth about :)  1/28/98

If this one doesn't get on that web page. .I shall have to hurt you. <g> Here on this lovely system we call AOL there is a language and language protocol that all follow. I know and understand this, having spent far too much time on this little service. These protocol's bring me to my quesion. I fully understand the abbreviation language used here such as LOL (Laughing Out Loud) or even LMAO (Laughing My Ass Off) or even GMTA (Great Minds Think Alike). I even follow the proper usage on the "Caps Lock" Key. FOR EXAMPLE I AM SHOUTING RIGHT NOW RIGHT??? Okay here's my ponderance. The Word "I" is required ot be capitol by the creators of the american english language correct? (knows the answer just testing you) Sooo am I to assume that the usage of the word "I" when on america on-line reading aloud (which I do most of the time) should be shouted?

If this is the case could you recommend a good throat lozenge for the irritation that is sure to follow? <g> HIYA DUDE! Just messin' wit yer head. . .catch you l8r. ;)


The really funny part is that I just spent half-an-hour figuring out that 'l8r' wasn't some kind of funny-face turned on its side.

Chat Room Parlance fascinates me. I can't help but wonder how long it's going to be before you can look up ':)' in the dictionary. Is ':' before 'A' or after 'Z'? Does ';' come before ':'? These are but a few of the questions posed to us by this The Brave New Geek-World.
