If we as a culture wish to truly take off as a sub-culture, we'll need customized emoticons and acronyms.

For example;

A higher-class sophisticate might wish to don his monocle during a chat, like so: -_Q

Whereas BTW means By-The-Way, BTB would stand for By-The-By; which is far more appropriate for gentlemen and women than the former.

Feel free to add your thoughts and ideas!
