"You go to the middle. You go to the middle. You go to the middle. DON'T STAND NEXT TO OTHER PEOPLE."

I meant the dots, but nevermind, I figured it out. I didn't make the connection between dot and DoT as the abbreviation for 'Damage Over Time'...

Who the FUCK uses abbreviations in daily speech?

dot is a common and accepted part of mmorpg terminology. Also, when you are in the middle of a fight, it's much quicker to say "dot" than "damage over time".

do you say world of warcraft every time you bring the game up, or do you say 'WoW'? who the fuck DOESNT use acronyms/abbreviations in daily speech?

I don't. How hard is it to say two more words? Besides, the only people who play WoW I know and would know what the hell I'm talking about are fat and smell like human waste, so I don't really talk about 'WoW' anyway.

I think people sound like complete tools when they use abbreviations in daily speech. Don't you guys want to punch everyone who says 'lol'? In dutch, lol is an actual word, but I still want to kick people in the nuts.

I'd hardly call a ventrilo (which is used for communication in games) conversation during a boss fight (in said game) everyday speech.

Like it or not, abbreviations are used by anyone and everyone in every day speech. Do you always say the United States of America? No, you (or the majority of people) say U.S. or perhaps U.S.A. Or perhaps the abbreviated names of countless organizations and companies, for instance NAACP and NRA and EA Games are more often pronounced in their abbreviated forms than not. Or perhaps degrees, like Ph.D and M.D., also rarely said in full form. Lots of things have been abbreviated for so long people don't even realize that they are, like T.V.

It bugs ,e when people use internet-speak in everyday language; then again, it bothers me when people use internet-speak on the internet. However, abbreviating a game's terminology in speech, especially in a conversation directly regarding the game, is pretty unremarkable.
