    For instance I make up my own acronyms when talking to less computer savvy friends. Just to make them feel even less techy-competent.

    I imagine them using it later to someone else and confusing the feck out of them.

    Actually, I've had another idea.

    Convince people that "established" net-slang means other things...

    unfortunately it has the opposite effect on my mates. If I unwittingly use any acronyms valid or otherwise i get the 'you sad bstard, what the feck you on about' response......or worse....I had been using 'lol' to reply to my mate's attempt at mirth for a few days...until I found out he thought it meant lots of love
