    As the title says.

    I know this is not only restricted to TSR, but it seems every other text message and online correspondance some peeps seem to always write LOL for the sake of it. LOL supposedly means "laugh(ing) out loud" but there are some peeps who keep LOLing everything when it is not remotely amusing at all. Why? Can't some people try and diversify their vocab a bit as well as less of the "Txtspk" on the net?

    Why do some people have to remark lol at almost every given opportunity? It's not even funny anymore.
    Never was funny TBH

    You'd really hate me then, I overuse it in everyday speak when I'm actually talking

    Oh and loooooooooooooooooooool

    Yeah, 90% of the time it's not used literally. So what? Slang and idioms are nothing new - picking it apart is only going to cause unnecessary friction.
