FTW, wtf? Epic win or lolfail?

Nerds the world over, not just LEGO nerds, are spewing phrases that used to be simple shorthand. Word are being replaced by colloquialisms that make no sense because they're being used out of context. Fine, if you really want to use FTW (For The Win) as a part of your comment, go ahead but remember that it should only be part of the comment. Maybe I'm just old and crotchety but seeing somebody drop one of those in a comment box somewhere drives me crazy. "WHAT is 'for the win'??" I don't mean "What does it MEAN?" I want you to use some descriptive words. Don't be shy. Don't be lazy. Say what you mean, it's not that hard and believe me, you aren't being 'cool' by using geek-speak.

One day you'll grow up and understand where I'm coming from. Heaven help the next generation....

  2. Would you like some more bridge with that trolling?
