You now have to stop posting, at least until you can produce 123 posts in quick succession, so you can stop at 3456

Ah, I was hoping to find something else...

While I am here, what does :3333 mean?
I got this Korean student girl teaching me Korean on Skype. She always types this, when using the text-chat.

I am afraid she will laugh at my lack of knowledge of text acronyms and or youth language.

Or she might think it's cute and explain you.

You are not alone.
I have severe trouble understanding my daughter and her FB speak.

This reminds me of
When I was a child, my parents knew nothing. By the time I grew up, i was amazed how much they had managed to pick up.
