I still use n00b and fag all the time... unfortunately it gets me banned from most games. I've been banned from 10-15 games so far for the word fag or gay...

Not even joking even some of my youtube videos with the word gay in the title have become 18+ videos. Like 75% of my omegle videos are 18+ because I troll people asking them if they are gay for jerking off to other dudes on the internet... I fucking hate modern political correctness.

I've also had people remove me from their friends list because I use these words... and they get butt hurt.. and I call them fucking fags.

Homosexuals however love it when I call them a gay fag and usually flirt with me. The local dude at the store is a flaming homo here and he loves it when I call him a guapa maricon and tries to hold my hand.

Fuck politically correct faggots for trying to ruin male bonding, whether homo or strait.

It occurred to me I haven't come across a "rofl" in the wild for quite some time. Along with "ttfn" and "asl". I'm sure I'm missing other older internet slang. I remember lurking AOL chat rooms when I was a kid and it was filled to the brim with slang and abbreviations I didn't understand then and dont understand or remember now.

Post old/outdated/dead internet slang you remember or know.
Yeah, good call on "rofl". That used to be common parlence but now hardly anyone uses it. Same with "kk"
3rd'ing rofl. I miss that. Also pretty much everything in this video:

One thing I remember is that certain posts or applicable things would be described as "win" or "fail". Epic Fail Guy and all that was a product of it. Cringe culture and post-irony has advanced so far that screenshots or archives from back then are bizarre to read now. There's a great comic which I probably have saved somewhere about a 2004 forum poster that's cryogenically frozen and awoken in the modern day and is extremely confused by people's jaded reactions to his outdated slang and happy-go-lucky attitude, good stuff.

I can still remember when an elementary school teacher told us that LOL meant 'lots of love'. She meant it too, this was probably in the year 2000 so things weren't cemented yet in my neck of the woods.
I still seeing people saying those things, and things even worse, perhaps is just a matter of perspective.

If you're calling them guapa you're literally calling them handsome. Or maybe they think you like them. You should bring a machete with you next time and leave stuff clear so they won't think you're one of them.

Nah its just jokes. Gay men have the hottest female friends tho. Nothing better than a wing man that makes women jealous at the same time while not being a threat.
:Omegajoy: I give up, you american people have so strange different behaviors.

I love the term "atrocity tourism" to refer to finding awful internet things just to laugh at them. Yet, I rarely see it used as a term anymore and I don't think it was very popular to begin with.
