To wonder why so many people are putting kisses at the end of their posts.

And noone is pulling them up on it. What happened to the 'nest of vipers'. It's getting all warm and fuzzy here grin xxxxxxooooxxxxxx

I saw a 'hun' on a thread yesterday. I was lost for words!

Xxx

I've noticed the x's too. They seem to go nicely with the posts written in text speak or littered with bad spelling, punctuation and grammar

The youngsters do it. <whispers> They may be a nicer group than us older ones imo.

Buzzardbird Mon 23-Sep-13 11:00:11

Should that be a full stop at the end of your post noisy? grin

nocarsgo Mon 23-Sep-13 11:01:21

Some people think a kiss or a lol is the same as a full stop lol xx

Buzzardbird Mon 23-Sep-13 11:01:26

Ah the whipper snappers with their 'lolling' and 'what's up bruv?' grin

I do it if I mean it - if people on a thread have been particularly kind to me and I have warm fuzzy feelings towards them then I express them with a 'x'.

I never call anyone huns though, unless I'm referring to their campaign against the Eastern Roman Empire.

Lol and x is punctuation for people under 20.

I do it if I mean it - if people on a thread have been particularly kind to me and I have warm fuzzy feelings towards them then I express them with a 'x'. That's not so bad. I have just noticed people putting them in randomly, like on a thread title. They must have that lovin' feeling grin

I have noticed it too, it's an evasion of the Huns <runs away screaming>

Mmmmmm.......maybe because the rules don't state you have to write in 'proper english' with technically correct spelling,grammar,sentence construction etc..... :-D

Anyway,they look perfectly normal next to the LTB/YANBU/DC/DH/DP/OW and :-D , :-) , :-o .......

Definitely a good thing if it's silenced the nest of vipers! Lol!

Actually....wait,no! I've just posted....prepare yourself for their return! Lmao!

The guidelines do actually suggest you avoid textspeak.

I (pleasantly, I hope) pulled someone new up on kissiness this week. It's the thin end of the wedge...

usualsuspect Mon 23-Sep-13 19:26:41

I have noticed lots of xxx too.

I don't like it much.

I don't mind a lol though.

Fenton Mon 23-Sep-13 21:08:04

I don't mind the occasional lol.

over txspkng does rather rattle my cage though.

as does too many .........!!!!!!!!!!!????......xxxxxx

WorraLiberty Mon 23-Sep-13 21:11:27

I've noticed it too lately and assumed it was something to do with Facebook...where it seems more acceptable.

It doesn't bother me and I'd never mention it on a thread

I do however silently think it makes them come across as a bit of a sap blush

Nest0fVapors Mon 23-Sep-13 21:17:31

sorry hun xx

MoreThanWords Mon 23-Sep-13 21:22:43

Chaos put an x on a thread earlier today

Fenton Mon 23-Sep-13 21:25:03

Did she mean it though or was it twatphone?

MoreThanWords Mon 23-Sep-13 21:28:32

She thought she was texting allegedly smile

Nombrechanger Mon 23-Sep-13 21:28:51
