Web Lingo and Rules of the Internet

Warning!! THE LINKS LABELED NSFW IN THIS ENTRY ARE NOT SAFE FOR WORK (or those easily grossed out)!!

So i recently commented on a friends’ blog with some commonly used gamer and internet lingo just to be replied to with, “WHAAAAA?!?!” So I’ve decided to put together a quick list of expressions and abbreviations that are commonly used across these intertubes.

  • Interwebs – Internet
  • Intertubes – Internet
  • wtf – what the fuck
  • lol – laugh out loud
  • WordPress is made of win and kitteh” – win refers to the fact that WordPress is awesome and is hense made of win (awesome things). Kitteh refers to the LOL area of the web and the religion born from there.
  • EPIC! – when something is epic, it’s well, erm.. EPIC?
  • fail (insert term) is fail – means something sucks horribly
