I don't know what that means. Do I need to learn how to do it? Help me!

CFrance, but, but, but what if someone gets up in a bad mood and posts something cranky and then they have a coffee and say:
"Yikes, did I really say that" and they look for a delete button but it's disappeared! There is no delete button anymore.
So they are really sorry they were cranky, and they reconsider.
And to delete their post, they have to use 3 digits, could be ^^^ or *** or ### or ???


We all make mistakes.

I always hated, "nothing," as a reply to, "what's wrong?" It should be banned from all vocabularies.

I just left my classroom. Students use "alot" as if it's really a word, or as if it really SAYS anything. How much is a lot? One day when I'm bored I'll compile a list of things they say that make me want to run my fingernails down a chalkboard. Hmmm...too much coffee today?

They are from some emoji or emoticon app.

You are all very funny! But I don't know what bumping over someone's post means either.

I think some people use /// or ... to passive aggressively imply that they just posted some nasty reply and then deleted it but still want you to know that they said something nasty. I'd rather they bring the delete button back. Otherwise, think twice, post once.

That's myself story and I'm stickin' to it!

I don't think "hood" is a bad term.
It's more descriptive and it's colloquial use defines an exact area.
It tells you more than simply using the word neighborhood which doesn't tell you very much.
A "neighborhood" could be anywhere.

CF - I don't know what the means either. I hope GG will enlighten us.

PS your last post was done twice. I think you thought once and posted twice. ::
