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 .
