Fixed for my predicament. They haven't done it recently, but the years 2002 through 2007 were marked by insults of this nature.
When you write love letters to an NGE character and code them several times over, then create a made-up language and translate said love letters to it to keep your siblings from reading it and subjecting you to their ridicule and judgment. Yes, I'm saying I did that, when I was fourteen, I think.
