I will never, ever, ever get anywhere near a lmao. Don't even start with ROTFLMAO.

I'm sure I can count, on one tightly-closed fist, the number of times, since the www was born, that I've "laughed my ass off" after reading a post on an internet message board.

A knowing smile? You bet.
A wide grin punctuated by a happy snort? My funny friends engender these on occasion.
A spontaneous giggle? Fairly rare, but it happens.
Laughing my ass off? Sorry, that just doesn't happen while I'm reading cybertext.

And, has anyone, anywhere, anytime, ever, in the history of the known universe, read some interwebby chat prose and fallen into rolling on the floor and laughing his or her ass off? Please.

I loathe these acronyms, I get irritable whenever I see them used, and a baby turtle suffers everytime the offending letters are typed in their sacrilegious forms. Please stop.

[**Rant over**]

Feel free to ventilate your own acronymical irritations here if it will help cleanse the collective websoul.

I am so with you on this thread. Every time I see that someone had written LOL, I think, "is that as creative as you can get?"
I prefer HAHA or HEHE as is most appropriate.
Then again, the last time I actually laughed was in the mid 90s, so...

I don't think those terms are meant to be taken literally either IRL or on the www. I have never laughed my ass off or gotten down on the floor and rolled around because something or somebody was humorous. But I have used them and similar colloquialisms to express different levels of having my funny bone tickled. I don't use them much on the net, but it doesn't bother me if someone else does.

LOL is often used to express derision for another person's point. Similar in meaning to the classic, :rolleyes:

I agree with Vince. Laboring under the impression that those acronyms are written to be interpreted literally is a bit silly. While I have no love of the degradation of the English language that has permeated (dominated) the internet I muchprefer "lol" or "lmao" to the use of "Hahahahahahahahahaha!" or "hehehehehehehehe." They both strike me as sort of lazy but at least the acronyms take up a relatively small amount of space. Whether you're actually expressing the level of humor you found in something or being disdainful of a point, I think they're better than the alternatives.

Old school def: Lolling means one's tongue is limply hanging out of one's mouth; as in: a catatonic state.

Some women's galleries here may make me LOL. I cannot deny it.


hey kids: What is the correct acronym for a post that causes drinking fluids being unceremoniously expelled through one's nostrils?

Hiii Fiiiiiive! *Borat-voice* :biggrin1:



The most annoying thing of all, is people who get annoyed over pointless things.


Besides, old folks aren't supposed to use E-language anyway. :tongue:

I've seen a lot of parents and such that believe LoL stands for 'Lots of Love', which is just so cute!

Aw, really? That is precious!

I'm a child raised in the early days of the internet. Aside from asl, lol was the only acronym I ran across in those days. Those, along with emoticons were the 'language' of the net I took notice of. I suppose I'm an odd mix - I text in fully worded sentences and litter them with emoticons. ;p They're more expressive anyway. >_>

Yup, but it can be a fine hobby.

Thwack.

Actually, I use LOL and its variants when I want to go slumming.
I never take them seriously and they don't bother me.
They sometimes help to establish just the tone you want ... not a high tone, not a very smart tone, but sometimes just the apposite tone.

MMMWW (made milk moustache wrong way)

Now, now grandpa....let's get you back to the home. We'll get you some jello and if you calm down I'll ask one of the nurses to give you a sponge bath, ok? :biggrin1:

I know someone who (literally) says "I D K":cool: (textspeak for I don't know, for those not in the know).

And, no, this is not a teenager, she's a full grown adult!

I blame that phone commercial for popularizing it enough for the general public. .-. The infamous "IDK, my BFF Jill." commercial.

So, now I've had a chance to really think about textspeak. I do think there's a time and place for it's use. I think I'm an adequate writer. It's important that I write well as a good part of my job is as a writer; however, when I'm texting, I'm going to use text speak. The simple reason? I have very old thumbs and they get tired - I am going to use short cuts.

And yes, I 'lol' a lot. I think it's charming, but likely others think I'm nuts. Do I 'rotflmao'? Well, a couple of times - but that has more to do with my lack of coordination than anything else. Can't laugh, read texts/posts and roll back in my office chair at the same time. MickeyLee really should come with a warning label.

I try not to use textspeak in posts, but sometimes it slips in. Oh well. If it does, I encourage you to locate me and give me a darn good spanking. I'll never learn if you don't! LOL ROTFLMAO

This is why I loves ya! Lol!

I actually like LOL! It has it's place if I am typing something in casual and friendly manner. I feel it gives a better example of what talking to me is like, as i will, chuckle, giggle and such throughout a convo. LOL's derivatives give you an insight as to how humorous I find a post. And i have ROTFLMAO IRL! Usually only my sis or my guy can say something that sets me off into a "i can't stand" laughing mess. I will end up on the floor, thou maybe not exactly rolling around on it. More useless jiggling slug on the floor.

I also get crap though for using emoticons, :rolleyes:

I don't mind using text speak occasionally, I'll do it only once in a while. I write whole sentences when I text because my thumbs are jets capable of Mach12 O.O. But that's just me. I DESPISE people that use text speak in real conversation. I'll be telling a joke that elicits laughter and instead of that melodious sound I love I hear "Lol that is so funny!". Really? Your using a shortcut to make something take longer? You've not only stabbed the language, you've done it for no benefit whatsoever. But I've been told I'm a grandpa. I'm not even thirty and I listen to the 40's station,(amongst others) and complain about peoples music... I think I was just born in the wrong century. (I love tech, but hate the way in which much of it is used)

I love emoticons because they convey emotion in a medium that is notorious for the lack of or the misinterpretation of it. So smiley away!^_^

Well I definitely LOLed at damnyouautocorrect, a lot of proper out loud laughter. I did actually come close to a PMSL a few times too. :redface:

But no, I've never fallen off the chair - but then my chair has sides.

I don't know, I've found that the denigration and completely deliberate use of abbreviations in all kinds communication is only tacit of those who have no real use of spelling anymore, or who don't know HOW TO.

Frankly, I don't like using it, but it seems my friends/family, etc. seem too willing to use it to be lazy.
