The spelling of that word is "hilarious."

Phonetically spelled words are among the most common grammar mistakes.

And calling my wandering path a "high road" certainly gave me a smile. Who says you can't rebel against a rebellion, anyway?

P.S. Speaking of correct grammar, does the comma after "'proper English'" go inside or outside the quotation marks? I always forget... LOL.



I think that those "guidelines" may need to have a title change. I would vouch that they were intended to be inforced rather than glanced at once or twice. The "proper English" "guideline" was categorized with topics like "bullying" and "rudeness," so do you think that those could also be ignored?
I agree that they should make those rules.

I really don't mind it. Like I use LOL, BTW, PLMK, and everything else like that, but I don't use 3 as e, and 7 as t or anything like that. Most people type it that way so they can save time.

I am a teen and I don't have a cell phone either.I think cell phones are more of a fad for younger people who have them. but back on topic I didn't even know what PLMK ment till I pieced it together with LMK.
