Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I am getting kind of burned out on it.
We should start something new to replace it on WebmasterWorld, and then tell everyone you heard it here first.

We know exactly what it means.. and I don't just mean literally.. Laughs Out Loud .. well it is but it's not, it's more subtle than that, there is not really an English equivelant.. at has it's own strength ...
lol is just fine ...
You are so right. The 'geek boy' admin at my workplace has started saying it all the time. I warned him a couple of times but yesterday I had to give him a dead leg and say "LOL at that you wierd child"
Heh Heh Thursdays are now and forever 'punch the geek boy day'
I've HEARD it also in real life, ehhh, I mean IRL.
I've even said "lol" out loud a couple of times and had to explain it to several less-internet-savvy people.
They now think I'm a real nerd.
Wich I might be, but I like to think I'm not :)

I mean, like I'm gonna use the same thing over and over again? Like it's just so lame! Like, get a vocabulary or something! Or like go to school some more.
1. Yes, other people are also sick of the overuse of “LOL”.
2. Many people to this day are still not sure of the true meaning of “LOL”.
3. Never use “LOL” when speaking, unless you want to be considered a geek.
4. It is definitely time to end the use of “LOL”.
So I guess half the time I use it as a shrug off.
Use it enough and people either carry on (at which point they go on ignore) or shut up as they start realising its a one sided conversation!
