That is cruel.

So now we're not allowed to write "el oh el"? And where the heck did "¡This cheese is burning me!" come from??

Wordfilters that are more annoying than anything - They modify behavior. They make people stop using certain words or acronyms and can kill memes.

Can you honestly say a forum is better off with that acronym being use instead of .. I don't know.. "Holy shit, that was so funny I shot milk out of my nose laughing and I haven't had milk in about three weeks... what the hell is wrong with me, guys?"

Also, lol is still funny.

Also, anyone mind telling me what translates into ponies? I can't figure it out from context and I'm too lazy to do the "long list" thing above.

I honestly don't use it much in forum posts, but I'm always looking for ways to f|_|c|< with filters.

I play poker and there's a word filter in the chat box...and every once in a while i feel the need to swear....Idk.

"I cried aloud with mirth and delight"? And I can understand if *I* say "lol", because it just means I had pizza that was too hot (a common occurence with me). Are there others here with this tendency?
