proliferation of things that should not proliferate
Okay, so I'm playing You Don't Know Jack online (which is totally cool but that's another story), and I am not kidding you -- everyone's first comment was "a/s/l?!?!?!"

I mean, really I'm here to kick your butt in trivia, not to pick you up.

And a friend of mine just mentioned they were a/s/l-ed on Napster.

What has this world come to?

Current Mood: flabbergasted

AUGH, I hate that "a/s/l" crap! It's just... rude, for lack of a better term. I mean sheist, if somebody's going to try and pick you up, they could at least *attempt* to use complete sentences. :p

well yeah!

And then what annoys me even more, is they get PISSY if you gasp don't feel like responding.

I get a screen of

a/s/l?!?!?!
a/s/l?!?!?!
a/s/l?!?!?!
a/s/l?!?!?!

until I have to just say 'NOOOOOO'

yargh!

forgive me for not being up to date on my short hand but, could you translate? (a/s/l -- that is)
maigrey From: maigrey Date: April 22nd, 2001 09:18 am (UTC) (Link)

it's what you get for being on a private IRC network :)

a/s/l is stupid idiotic shorthand notation for
age
sex
location

so you respond like, 24/f/california
and then because you had an 'F', guys start hitting on you. :)

Although I was mentioning this to a friend, and he said he always replies:
63/M/nextdoor! Which, I think, will have to be my default in the future.

The proliferation of a/s/l has gotten way to out of hand, that's for sure. I too was a/s/l'd while Napsterizing. "Excuse me, but I'm here for the music ... good bye. Besides, I'm an M, so reign in your adolescent hormones and go away." Once when Napstering, I got an IM that said mind if I download off of you. Nice of them to ask, but isn't that the whole point?

Anyway, I digress, cause what I really wanted to say is I'm always lookin for someone who can either take or give a good trivia butt kickin online. Interested?
