1.(v.) The act of removing all the vowels from a post on a message board. Usually done automatically by servers, but can be done by mods
on a forum
. The technique is used to prevent trolls
, as well as forcing disgruntled users to actually think out their responses instead of blindly spewing hate and/or flaming
other people. The logic behind it is the fact that there is not a single word in the english language that contains no vowels when spelt correctly. Removing them will result in a sentence crumbling into a garble of random consonants.
Troll: Hmm...I'll say that "anyone who posts on this forum is a fucking faggot!"
Actual Post: nyn wh psts n ths frm s fkng fggt!
Response 1: Huh???
