The suffix "machine" is more or less meaningless. There's nothing perverse or vulgar about the term lolmachine.

Using my commonsense, LOL means Laugh out Loud, so Lolmachine is a term for a cute joke. But then again, It bugs me...

I'm not a parent so I wouldn't know exactly how this person feels, but it seems like the poster of this thread would fall into the "over-bearing" and "controlling" categories of parents..

I'm sure that I wouldn't want my parents to be reading my IM conversations... and even if they did and found me to be saying poopoo peepee kaka (say I was 9 and not 19), they should talk to me face-to-face about anything they find innappropriate, instead of registering for online forums to ask strangers anonymously and thus preserve their ability to snoop around in their kids' business.

..sorry i come off so bitter, but thats's just how i view this.
