Yeah, I should clarify, we didn't invent smashes, we just coined the term for them.

Uh oh. The thread has grown to the point it is now regressing. The first-post-responders are jumping in, here and after we salvaged it and turned it into something civilized!

Where were you when we were fighting the war, damnit? WHERE WERE YOU?!

Anyways, I'm thinking of changing my sig so it has an acronym, an abbreviation, and an initialism in it so that every post I make spreads the internet heresy.

Come to think of it, would the OP be against using symbols too? & instead of and? @ instead of at? $ instead of dollar?
