    Lol @ this thread, no discussion at all.

    At least my lol is relevant because I'm literally Lol'ing.

    Did you hear about the story of the guy who thought lol meant "lots of love" so he sent a text to his friend whose mum had just passed away saying "Sorry to hear about your mum, may she rest in peace...lol"

    Lol has become a way to make texts less awkward or when you have nothing to say.

    "You're right about that, lol" etc... It really doesn't just mean "LAUGHING OUT LOUD" anymore... It has, ermm... "evolved"

    Lots of love. :kiss:

    In fact, my parents thought it meant that for a while. LOL.
    Yeah there was some story a while ago about someone signing off a 'sorry for your loss' letter with LOL cos they thought it meant lots of love haha

      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.
