Now that the Internet is becoming pretty popular, I was thinking we could build a web dictionary, it would be especially useful for people new to the Internet culture but it can serve as a helpful reference if you encounter any unfamiliar words or abbreviations. I'll start with a few popular ones but you can add more as you please.

LOL
Lovin' our Lord. Became popular on the Christian usenet bulletin boards in the 90s.
Example: Weather is nice today, LOL

Cool story bro
Used to express appreciation of a particularly compelling post

NSFW
Not sorry for whiteness. This one started "trending" during the BLM riots, it's used to express that the poster doesn't think there is anything wrong with being white, a symptom of white fragility.
Example: Black people belong in a gulag, NSFW

Cringe
A self-imposed system of control put about by young people who lack the confidence to try anything except accuse others of being 'cringey'. This folds the ironic distancing and fear of awkwardness of people born in the 80s. Before that they just called each other homophobic slurs.

Example: Having friends is so cringe

YOLO
Popular use is seen in many cultures around the world and in recent years also ONLINE, believed by anthropology experts to have originated in the bornean tropical rainforest. "Young, Old, Life, Other", uses are many but foremost as deep appreciation to the interconnectedness of all that is.

example:

"A woman has died and a man has been injured after actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on a New Mexico film set for the 19th Century western Rust. YOLO!"
