Default Unanswered: Am I allowed to...

I am new to BI. Well, I signed up a few months ago but haven't used it much because I've just been learning BABV. Anyways, I read the rules and I have a couple questions.

1. There is a rule that says:
No LOLspeak or netspeak (this means no misspelling of words to use the LOLcatz dictionary or teh)

What's that mean exactly? Does that mean I am not allowed to say "LOL" for Laughing out Loud? And what is the LOLcatz dictionary? And what's teh? And what if I accidentally make a typo or misspell a word? I just want to be sure I understand the rule!

2. Am I allowed to post a link to my Build-A-Bearville site on my profile or signature? The rules say no advertising, but I'm not trying to sell anything on the site. It's just my personal webpage.

Hi there.

First off, I believe you may put a link to your site in your signature.
But you just may not run around and post in every thread about joining there... if that makes sense

Secondly - the LOLspeak is... sort of like this -
"hai der wood u lyk to be teh firends?" (hi there, would you like to be the friends) as you can see... there is a reason people ask you *not* to use it. Netspeak is u r 2 cute... stuff like that.

I believe LOL is okay, general things like "idk, lol, kwim" .... those are ok as long as it's not used crazy like. - But a someone can correct me if I'm wrong

edit -
you could also post a link here
