    You can get away with an "LOL" every now and then, though.

    AOLese is a frightfully common way of speech that has no lower case letters, and no formal guidelines for grammar or spelling. A variant of n00bspeak, commonly used by 12 year old girls.

    "I have 1 4 U!"

    is an excellent example.

    Welcome to Bike Forums, justcrankn! Good to see someone who's read the guidelines .

    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
