When people register for wtf!, they are sent an email. Can you put the first line stating that this site does not appreciate aim lingo?Im sure most people dont even bother reading all the rules before posting. Otherwise when they activate the account, you can tell them that the first post should be in the welcome wagon and that AIM lingo is frowned upon.


/me ducks incase someone hurls insults for starting thread.

It already says so in the RULES of ths site. If they don't read those rules, what makes you think they'll read the "welcome" e-mail?

If someone talks in AIM lingo, tell them to shut the hell up and make fun of their ridiculous posts.

Seriously, who the fuck cares?

alternatively, utilising elongated vocabulary recognition software..

i.e, no words under 4 letters can be posted.. for example this sentence but not the first.
now that would be fun..

Noes nubes are smart at being dumb, instead of AIM lingo you will get hybrid words (words that are 4 letters or less stuck together)

eggsample - poached

example, these words would be banned im am teh nub

but a nube being smart at being dumb will type these like this im.am tehnub


which im.sure would annoy everybody inthis place more than AIMlingo!

Not necessarily. I think some people would jump at the idea of having a mental punching bag. XD

By the way, I thought the spelling of nube was either newb, or the derogatory noob. =/

Another pleasant article from someone who doesn't enjoy Aimlingo =D, http://senseis.xmp.net/?path=BadHabits&page=CommunicatingWithIdioticAbbreviations

Edit: I get the eggsample, but what's with the poached? :confused:

as in poached eggs...
most of the places i trolled before i came here used nube, and then it became nub or nublet.
