"LOL"

Post by The Master » Tue Oct 06, 2009 11:46 am

Do you say LOL?

I used to hate saying LOL; in fact I went out of my way to make sure I always used "haha" or "teehee" or "snort" or "MUAHAHAHAHA" (for those special moments) instead. LOL for me represented everything that was bad about the AOL generation who were slowly and surely infecting my precious internet.

These days, though, I LOL like the best of them - some days can even be a total LOLathon. Somehow in the last two or three years it just seemed to lose its stigma, and now all the other forms seem kind of convoluted or pretentious.

People who actually use it in *spoken* speech, though, should be burnt. Also, policemen should not say LOL.

What do you reckon?

Say it? NO.

Use it on internet? Yes. Felt like a bloody leper by not using it.

When I say "say", I mean (of course) "write", apart from the bit where I actually meant "say". LOL :lol:

Very rarely, in general it makes me feel about 14 when I use it. On forums I usually just use smileys, everywhere else I usually use English. :D

I do use it quite a bit, but would never verbalise it.

I used to type 'Ha' instead as I thought it was less nerdy, but then got paranoid that it came across as sarcastic :?

I never type it (I don't think).
But I do say it! It's always used sarcastically though.
I also utter "ROFLMAO" from time to time ;)

I'm intrigued! When you say "ROFLMAO", do you enunciate every letter? Or does it come out as "Wafflemow!" or something? :?

I've got a friend who says, "lemow" (LMAO).

It really. Fucking. Irritates me.

That's why she does it :?

It's the "Yo, Blair" incident that gets me. WTF? Act like a f**king president, you mouth-breathing inbred. :evil: Well, he's ex-pres now, thank Christ. Go Obama!

Used to use it a lot online when I was younger, but not as much these days. Never said it out loud though... how can "LOL" actually replace a real chuckle or laugh? O.o
