Out of the last 8 reps I have received over a period of days, all from different members for different threads, 5 of them are, verbatim, just "lol." A sixth is "lol" + a few other words.
I rarely even get a "lol" rep, ever... which is why it's so WEIRD!
I'm creeped out, very much so.
I think the planets are coming into alignment and the oceans are rising.
And members unseen for weeks or months are coming home to roost.
Too many portents flying around.
