    Odd how forum discussions drift into inane drivel when the honest but outspoken are banned? Lmfao.

    I can't remember that far back. It is a cyclical discussion. You have to step quite a lot out of line to get banned from here - it does happen though.

    Or perhaps one person's inane drivel is somebody else's important and sometimes dangerous communication with his supporters?
    (A topical reference that hopefully may date very quickly.)

    Since understanding what has been written or spoken in discussions is important, it would help to know what 'Lmfao' means.
    Without comprehension, all can appear to be drivel...

    Odd how someone's first post in nearly 3 years pulls up an old thread rather than contributing something other than drivel.

    I suspected something like this, but some of these lazy acronyms are new to me.
    I often learn something new here, but not all is inspiring or of any use.

    LMAO - Laughing My Arse Off
    LMFAO = As above.
    RAOFLMFAO = rolling around on the floor laughing my f'ing arse off

    And finally as Bill Bailey said,

    RAOFLMFAOAYST = rolling around on the floor laughing my f'ing arse off and yet still typing.

    Bill must have made the last one up. The "yet" is overly erudite.

    Overly erudite or just the right amount of cynical?

    overly erudite for sure. I don't think cynicism comes into it. I can see Bill pausing treating the "and yet" with a suitable pause either side for dramatic effect when speaking it out loud but in an abbreviation it is wasted.
