Special Request

I wasn't always one who watched my language. I wasn't always very religeous. I was at one time a young man who knew every vulgar or irreverent word imaginable, and one who was not uncomfortable using them in everyday speech. I was at one time, after all, a sailor.

Those words still float around in my head more than I'd like, so I have a request. The acronym LMAO brings a word in my head that I'd rather not use. ROFL means basically the same thing, i.e. funny, humerous, but without the more vulgar terms. Could we use that acornym rather than the other.

I'm not trying to be preachy, or force my ideals on anyone else, just asking for a favor.

Just a thought. Thanks.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

OK by me. Just keep in mind that I'm not always laughing when I'm ROTF!

I think I know what LMAO means, I can guess ROTF. I've referred to DH, and I think I didn't say anything bad....here's the question - is there a list somewhere where you can look up what these things are supposed to mean?

I think the suggestion is a very good one. There is a lot of entertainment I don't watch because of the language. There are so many ways of being really funny, really serious, etc without all the "shock" words.
