McLEAN, Virginia- Newspaper giant USA Today tried to warn parents about apparent “text codes” being used by teens to communicate possibly dangerous behavior, however young people responding on social media say the terms are outdated and not used. Some even say these acronyms never even existed.

Here are some of the responses on affiliate KSDK after they reposted the article:

“I dont know what chat rooms youve been on but ive never used any of these xD i dont even recognize them (nor do i use snapchat for anything more than pictures of my dogs and the sky)”

“Yeahhh no. None of these are real and nobody uses “text lingo” anymore. These may have been a thing like 10 years ago, but if you sent one of these to someone today, they’d think you were stupid”

“Uhhh this looks like something that was probably used on AIM back in 2002. And even then, it was probably an online sexual predator using these “codes”, if they even existed.”

One teen sarcastically thanked the newspaper for making parents even more paranoid.

Here are the “text codes” listed in the article:

KYS: kill yourself

KMS: kill myself

KPC: keeping parents clueless

DOC: drug of choice

CD9: parents are around

POS: parents over shoulder

MOS: mom over shoulder

FYEO: for your eyes only

WTTP: want to trade photos
