    Cause the use of words change and don't always adhere to their original definitions, like feminism.

    honestly I find it weird when people say lol but yet they're not laughing and sometimes something is just really not funny ? Is It to cover up embarrassment or they have nothing else to say?

    the word lol is becoming annoying because its all anyone seems to say
    people should bring up a new word or something different
    when did LOL = laughing out loud?


    I thought it meant lots of love lol

    I think 'lol' is more for when you do that slight laugh.

    LOL
    l I say lol when i find something vaguely funny, and your rant about lol falls into that category so...
    i just think it's stupid especially when people add z to it like lolz, it is because it's easy to type?

    Is this about people typing "lol" into messages, or saying it in person? I don't mind lol in messages, but it should never be spoken!
    both

    I think it didn't originally mean anything, but was given a full form meaning after.
