The below messages, provided to us by Facebook user Sarah Heyward, who has given us permission to use her name, are the first we're aware of to be explicitly presented whole and in this quantity.
Then today another anonymous tipster, who has also been spending a lot of time watching and listening to Laporte's shows, pointed us toward something much more concrete.
"That's the one parents should be looking at," he says.
"If parents don't know those, it doesn't mean they're old -- it just means they're not tuned into Internet culture." Jansen, on the other hand, says what she's offering is just the tip of the iceberg.
They're still in your computer's memory, her computer's memory, and at least one server's. You can also copy and file the entire conversation.

"There's so many of these terms that I had to make a second list," she says, "Top 50 More Acronyms Every Parent Should Know." That list consists of terms that are much more familiar, such as "L8R," "BRB," "LOL" and "F2F," which many parents would already know.
In any case, no glossary of text acronyms is going to fully explain what your teens are saying.
Did you know that when your teenager texts "8," he -- or she -- is suggesting oral sex? "Some of these are absolutely hilarious," writes "First Cuts," who posted the link to the online aggregator site Digg. "I honestly have to say I have never seen most of these terms," says Sascha Segan of PC Magazine.
That's according to a new list entitled "Top 50 Text Acronyms Parents Should Know," which is is making its way around the Internet and has caught the eye of some local TV news reporters. Many people who see the list wind up howling with laughter, since many of the terms are completely unknown to most people, teenaged or otherwise.
And the Midwest is just a hotbed of this sex chat-room stuff." Jansen's not saying that every teenager is using each acronym, but she insists all of them are things parents should be aware of.
"It's a good overview of what parents ought to be aware of, even if their kids aren't going to these weird chat rooms, because kids pick them up anyway," Jansen explains "It's like when I was young and my friends and I looked up dirty words in the dictionary." Segan isn't convinced that your middle-school-aged son or daughter will soon be fluent in bondage terminology.
"Most kids are going to have terms that only they and their small group of friends understand," says Segan.
