The actions described may occasionally be oddly specific in nature, in order to add to humor or shock value.

The slang, however, is unconditionally and indiscriminately used against exploiters of all ages.
  • Slender - The male/masculine equivalent of the Copypaste term, though this term does not hold as much derogatory connotations. It derives its name from the usage of R15 scaling options as well as the legs of certain bundles in order to appear as tall as possible, as well as the usage of the Robloxian 2.0 package, which some have compared to the Slender Man, an iconic fictional creepypasta character and internet meme. Otherwise, its aesthetic inspiration is near identical to its feminine counterpart.

  • Voided - Ignoring another person in a roleplay, often due to a failed roleplay, being annoying, or trolling.

  • cord - A way of saying Discord without the chat filter interfering.

Capitals

Capitals (or their more common name 'Caps') used in text differs in meaning depending on how it's used, using ca on a single word implies emphasizing or exaggerating that word. Caps used in the entire text however refers to shouting, often used to replace exclamation marks (!). Someone saying "caps" or "oops caps" after using the aforementioned shout writing implies accidentally turning and/or leaving on Caps Lock.

Notes

  1. Usage note: Terms suffixed with -bag may cause offense, as the suffix has its origins in a filter bypass for a similar suffix used online that is based on a homophobic slur.
