    Some hubbers are very good at using these terms in the forums.

    Is the HubPages management hearing this? Should we use them in the forums?

      Maybe you should just ROFL (roll on the floor laughing)instead and keep all your body parts, or exercise a little more control over yourself and just LOL. That way you wont cause offense to anyone. Unless you rolf or lol inappropriately that is.

      There was a story on Facebook about a mother who, when telling her daughter that her nan had died, finished off the message with a LOL. She thought it meant lots of love.

        I think WTF does not mean 'lots of love'.

          You said "should we use them?"  I think it is clear we can and do and are allowed to.  No need for staff to answer that. Just try reporting a post with WTF in it and see the resulting subsequent complete lack of action if you need further proof.

            What are the Forums for?

            1. We encourage all Hubbers to use the Forums as an open space to:
            Interact with each other in the spirit of cooperation and fun

            2. Ask for and respond to calls for help and assistance with publishing on HubPages

            3. Share advice and tips on how to create better Hubs and how to draw more visitors

            4. Come up with ideas to make HubPages work better for everyone

            5. Discuss your favorite topics

            5. The Forums allow the community to complement each individual Hubber’s own talents and interests, to provide a living and growing repository for shared wisdom, mutual support and inspiration.



            What are we not allowed to do in the Forums?

            In order to keep the Forums clean, constructive, and fun, we must maintain high standards of conduct. The following are prohibited in the Forums:

            Debate and disagreements on points of substance are all right, but personal attacks, petty bickering, extreme profanity, will be dealt with swiftly.


            Multiple Accounts: While we don't prohibit having more than one HubPages account, we ask that you stick to a single persona in the forums. The deceptive use of multiple accounts, especially in a single thread is prohibited. The use of secondary accounts to circumvent a forum ban is also prohibited.

    how did this thread get so creepy?  I used to the LOL meant lots of love and used it several times very inappropriately - a good friend let me know my error before I really messed up.  I don't like these "shorthand" text things - I hate them, actually.  But I find these lol very useful and cute.  When people talk to me I have a hard enough time understanding them, without having to stop and think what the letters stand for in LMFAO and ROFL and LOL and WTF - so be warned, it makes me grouchy!  (altho, of all of them, I most like WTF, it is so accurate sometimes!)

          Many people use multiple ip-addresses here, and come into a single forum post to manipulate a good discussion.

          Plus- HubPages does not have 'clearly' defined rules as to what behaviors are acceptable within its forums, and what not. Even if you 'think' someone's post is 'bad', it's not that moderators will also find it bad. That's the problem.

          It makes these forums a junkyard.

            The rules are not that vague. Don't spam, don't attack people, don;t post hate speech and don't break the general peace and civility of the community too often or too much.

            Actually, multiple IP's are reserved for hard-core trolls and sock puppets.  Most people with multiple accounts don't bother (because they aren't being MASSIVE pains in the butt)

            With that said, there are many different ways to figure out if two accounts are the same without IP addresses.

            Suggestion:

            Start your own site so you can have complete control.  Otherwise be happy that HP has done all the work and all we have to do is participate in their program and earn $$$$.

            The forums have no ads and produce nothing for HP.  Although Google search does like the forum conversations.  It is a privilege which I appreciate and enjoy.

            Thank you HP for providing such a wonderful platform for us all.

            If you believe that to be true hit the report button.  Using more then one persona in the forums is a major TOS violation.  If you are correct HP will take the necessary actions.


            This website was not created just for you.  We all must follow the rules, if you believe any of our members are in violation, report them.

            Creating thread after thread is not productive and if anything works against whatever point you are trying to make.

            IMO you have much more experience here then seven weeks.  So you know that the sockpuppet discussion has been covered before.  If not type sockpuppet in the search bar and spend the day reading the hundreds of threads on the subject.

          Apparently, PhenomWriter was using an identity, possibly under his own name(at the time) and was rudely insulted by one sock puppet. He then proceeded to open yet another thread to complain about sock puppets. In reality, that didn't work well for him, because the sock puppet opened a thread about him. Both I think were closed to reply. I know for sure one of those two threads was. I tried to post my last post to that thread and closed to reply was where the reply button was.

          And, now he is mad. I figure that his other account was banned, which is why he is using this account.

          Thus, the sock puppet adventure leads us to where we're at now. hmm

When you were getting post by post handed to you on a silver platter in another thread and you admitting that PhenomWriter was another one of your accounts(at the time you were using a sock puppet account).

              So, dear sir, your own actions have been working against you this whole time and yet you've managed to fail to see it. Ironic.

              I'm sure you'll be wondering how this can be? Well I know, but I'm going to leave you to ponder the issue. If you choose not to, then it will show itself in your future actions.

    "Down With The Sickness"

    "Can you feel that?
    Ah, s*

    Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
    Broken your servant I kneel
    (Will you give in to me?)
    It seems what's left of my human side
    Is slowly changing in me
    (Will you give in to me?)

    Looking at my own reflection
    When suddenly it changes
    Violently it changes (oh no)
    There is no turning back now
    You've woken up the demon in me

    [Chorus:]
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness [x3]
    Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
    Get up, come on get down with the sickness
    You mother get up come on get down with the sickness
    You forger get up come on get down with the sickness
    Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

    I can see inside you, the sickness is rising
    Don't try to deny what you feel
    (Will you give in to me?)
    It seems that all that was good has died
    And is decaying in me
    (Will you give in to me?)

    It seems you're having some trouble
    In dealing with these changes
    Living with these changes (oh no)
