    WTF?? NO!!

    OMG - that's just wierd...

    I mean, I'm on here loads and the only thing I sometimes say in real life is "kk" and that's only because it started off as something I said and then I got into the habit of it online...

    I say WTF and FFS etc etc but not as letters, as words... because they're like ordinary phrases... but "lol"... honestly, you'd have to be insane... :rolleyes:

    I would never say 'lol' in real conversation, but its an invaluable term on msn, as it helps with jokes, sarcasm and even understanding if msn has sent your message! (ie if person puts 'lol' you know its been sent).

    But in general i refrain from using txt speak innit!

    I never use it, it just doesn't sound right in my opinion.

    Mainly because it's not an actual word

    I sometimes say it as a joke. I've never said it accidentally- I've always meant to say it as a joke during a lesson. Eloel, woot, roffel, el maow, effeffess and double you tee eff.
