Speaking of text stuff, I wonder just how many, if any people that write in text talk actually do the things they text at the time they text it.

One "for instance", NN wrote "LOLLOLLOL". Was he really laughing out loud when he wrote it?

I suspect that most, if not all people, use that particular text to mean they are amused, but do not actually laugh out loud.

I know, I'm old. And not really :)

Though I personally don't like "text-talk", it does enable the one talking to convey their meaning behind what they are saying. Unfortunately, since our emoticons (here on the forum) are no longer working, I feel that I must resort to drastic measures in order to convey my intentions in what I've said so that others don't misinterpret what I"m saying.

So yes...in order to show the reader that I'm "kidding", I use the "LOL" text-talk so that they don't get the wrong idea from what I'm trying to say.

I don't like it, but I guess I'm just a compromiser. LOLOLOL!

LOL is often used to show that I'm joking, as NN said. Usually when I do actually laugh out loud, I say that I'm literally LOLing. When I say I'm  ROFL, obviously at 56 years old I'm not literally rolling on the floor. I am, however, laughing more than just out loud. I also use "heh" when I'm joking or when I'm just chuckling a bit.

It looks like I inadvertently dragged NN's thread off topic. My apologies NN, bad form for a moderator.

No sir...not at all. It was just a silly topic with no intended direction. 

I will say though...I had dual intentions with the topic.

1. Just to be silly and hopefully bring a smile to someone's face.

2. On a more serious side, as I mentioned earlier...our curiosity in things can often lead to trouble.

Heresy

HER'ESY, noun [Gr. to take, to hold; Latin haeresis.]

1. A fundamental error in religion, or an error of opinion respecting some fundamental doctrine of religion. But in countries where there is an established church, an opinion is deemed heresy when it differs from that of the church. The Scriptures being the standard of faith, any opinion that is repugnant to its doctrines, is heresy; but as men differ in the interpretation of Scripture, an opinion deemed heretical by one body of christians, may be deemed orthodox by another. In Scripture and primitive usage, heresy meant merely sect, party, or the doctrines of a sect, as we now use denomination or persuasion, implying no reproach.

2. heresy in law, is an offense against christianity, consisting in a denial of some of its essential doctrines, publicly avowed and obstinately maintained.

3. An untenable or unsound opinion or doctrine in politics.

 

Heretic

HER'ETIC, noun

1. A person under any religion, but particularly the christian, who holds and teaches opinions repugnant to the established faith, or that which is made the standard of orthodoxy. In strictness, among christians, a person who holds and avows religious opinions contrary to the doctrines of Scripture, the only rule of faith and practice.

2. Any one who maintains erroneous opinions.

 

Titus 3:10-11

10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;11 knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

 

Acts 24:13-15

13 neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. 14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: 15 and have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
