    Sure, Muduh, anything for you . But there's really no need to torture your mind with the idiotic sentences in plain English that I've come up with as a translation to the jumble of lingo/l337 5up4 h4x0r sentences. Just goes to show how corrupted/thoughtless some people can be.

    Okay, I'm gonna admit it...I didn't know what ETA meant until about a week ago I'm a slow learner and I was too embarrassed to ask. I finally figured it out on my own, I am proud to add

    In my case, I use *asterisks* for special emphasis. I'm too lazy to figure out how to use italics, I guess

    1. "LMAO" is another way to say "LOL," aka something is really funny.
    2. Asterisks are used to put stress on words.
    3. "XD" I'm not so sure about, but I think it's used in place of the smiley.

    LMAO = Laughing my a$$ off
    ROFL = Rolling on the floor laughing
    LOL = Laughing out loud
    IMHO = In my humble opinion
    ETA = Edited to add
    IANAL = I am not a lawyer
    IIRC = If I recall correctly

    and there are a bunch more, of course.

    XD is a smilie face, for people too lazy or whatever to use our REAL smilies.
