Well, I'd only just clicked "post" when they scored, right before the break.

Here's something I saw in the press yesterday...


A study says textspeak is stunting teenagers' vocabularies. This may be so, but failing to understand textspeak can be equally problematic. Many older people assume "LOL" stands for "Lots of Love"; in fact it's "[I'm] Laughing Out Loud". This can lead to social calamity if, like a middle-aged woman I heard about, you innocently misuse the acronym when texting the bereaved.

"Sorry to hear about your loss," this woman texted a female acquaintance. "LOL."
