When one goes on communities on livejournal
or any sort of forum and uses phrases such as 'FTW'
One can tell whether they are a forum freak if they constantly refer to physical actions in comments or instant messaging and putting these actions into asterixs
Ben: Your mum's a filthy filthy whore
Steve: Yeah i had her last night
Gary: *kills himself*
Ben: GOD, you forum freak.
