I know what they stand for, but just, when did these terms originate?
Does anyone say in person "for the win" for e.g.?
These terms quietly irk me lol. Daft, i know, but they do.
I just picture geeks all sat round a computer monitor cackling away to themselves because someone hit an o instead of a p & typed out a word wrongly, and these geeks just cackle away to themselves saying it was "epic loss" & what not. Nope, it was just a typing error, nothing "epic" about it. & since when did so many non-epic things become so "epic" anyway?
That's just my mini rant lol. I know others must surely feel the same about various net/text abbreviations, this one for some reason, just bugs me more than most.
Even moredso because i almost found myself using it the other day
