It doesn't really matter which Mod did it. The title of your thread was very vague before, and it's a forum rule to have descriptive titles. :wink:

Lol, I stopped playing many online games just because people always would talk in acronyms and "l337" speak and they thought they were cool (you know who they are, those wanabe hackers who dress like the weirdoes in the movie hackers).

Lol, funny thing is alot of people keep using the acronyms while using headsets and actually talking.
