I have never understood what [email protected]@K means?

Anyone care to enlighten me? I have seen it on cars as well as other stuff and always thought that it made the seller look like an illiterate idiot.

It means "LOOK" as a way of drawing attention to the ad. It does precisely the opposite for me - it identifies the poster as an inordinate bellend.

But why not say LOOK instead of [email protected]@K?

"Motorway miles only" referring to a high miler..........Look, it's a flamin high miler, end of! (If it's a beemer or Audi, it's also been thrashed up the motorway and abused).

Little work needed for MoT is always a winner.
Baby forces sale (must be a right miserable little twart if all it does is cry, poo, wee and make you sell your wheels)
Rare in this spec (It's an Astra. There's millions of them, all in the same colour and spec, everywhere. There are 15 identical ones for sale on my street alone)
Good condition for year (If it's forty years old, being recognisable as a car rather than recycled into washing machines puts it way ahead of most of its peers)

I guess all the above rules out 99.9% of all car adverts.
That's my comment and not an advert word/s.

Tell me what do I look for?
