Always start with a simple Google search. Happens to bring up an accurate translation as first result. It saves you from trying to figure out language (it happens to be in Aramaic, which can be spelled in many different ways)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

And it didn't even require a high school diploma.  :P

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that! Finally I can breath again!
Now that we've cleared that, we return to the Gemorah:

גופא

אמר ר׳ שלאנקס משמיה דר׳ דאן:

A forum isn't a chat session.  Please use full words and regular english.

Using expressions in other languages seemingly doesn't violate that rule. The rule is to exclude Millenial style writing which is commonly used in chat applications, almost never uses capitals, uses characters to represent syllables (u for you, y for why, b4 for before, etc.) and drops certain elements out of sentences (if they can be called such).

Sure they can. They take a sentence and drop certain elements. It starts off as a sentence, regardless of what the final product looks like.

Could someone please translate that for me?

It seems like @Dan named the language that is used around here "regular english" which is spelled exactly like that, with no capitalization. That is a distinct language from English (be it American English, or the Queen's English). For all I know it might even be a dialect of Yiddish.

Now you're catching on. That's exactly why I wrote it that way and why there's an emoji instead of a period right here :)
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Well. I wasn't born yet when you wrote that. I have referred to the language several times 'round here in a descriptive way. It is thanks to @shlonx bringing up your old post that I now know what it is called.
