Funny article in The Guardian by Loretto on 17 July 2013 2:48pm
I am just crying laughing here. Scroll down the comments and read/interpret the sign off RobinMatyjasek suggests to Leaflet on July 17 @8:00am. It took me a while to get the meaning....

Hahahaaa! I have been staring at RobinMatyjasek's comment for about 10 minutes and still don't get it! Well, it is 12.50 a.m. over here. Maybe I will try again tomorrow! :)

Sue...I did the same thing...then I saw that this _/ was a leg......now put two and two together...sometimes the comments people make about the articles are very, very funny.

Ok, it will probably get deleted but here goes,

I get really annoyed when people I consider to be good friends sign off with 'best'.

One of my bosses always signs off with 'happy to discuss further' which makes me think that she's actually not happy to discuss anything further and I need to just get on with it.

Xs go a long way.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx when I really like someone or miss someone

xxx for family or friends

X (followed by name/initial) for friends who themselves never use Xs

XoX when I'm feeling bored of xxx

Possibly then this one is the logical conclusion. Why don't you give it a try?
