    I don't know why, but I know quite a few people who when they are chatting or whatever. I watch them have a AIM chat or something and it goes like this...

    ninjafacedeath38: dude, I just fit like 92 cheesy poofs in my mouth at once.

    L337MorOn93: LOLlOlLoLOLOlOL!!! URA dOrk d00d.

    But they do this completely straight faced, not even laughing out loud. So my question to you, are you guilty of loling when you aren't really loling?

    Oh man, this thread isn't a waste of bandwith... LOL
  2. I never use the term "LOL" ever. EVER!

    A) For reference, I started this thread on the basis of the fact that it's one of the worst ideas for a thread I've ever had.

    B) I very rarely write LOL. I usually just do one of these.... :D or perhaps.... HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH... which is more annoying.

    I often lol at people using lol.



    heh, I just made myself laugh, I'm actually laughing rightn ow.

    often times in real life as a joke me a my friends exclaim "el ol el" or "be ar be" or "n00bzor pwnu"

    I rarely use the conjunctions(as I mentioned in the lounge) so when I do you know that I mean it.

    I think my most used acknowledgement of a joke is


    it's subtle, appropriate, and non-offensive, it usually coincides with a smile or a smirk on my end, whenever I make a joke online I generally follow with a quick

    and often when I earnestly find something funny I respond with a singular but sincere "ha!"

    matt, in the lounge thread, Although I wasn't exactly rolling on the floor laughing my F'in Ass off, my insides were, and I nearly slipped out of the chair.

    these are good too :D :D :D

    Don't worry, WR. I wasn't callin' you a liar. ;)

    I thought of this thread at work one time and just started laughing. (I constantly LOL at work when I'm by myself because I think of the craziest ****. But I'm by myself so people who see me must think I'm crazy) :p

    I think maybe she's become omnipotent like Morla the giant turle in the Neverending Story and therefore has to address herself in the royal 'we.'

    Or something...
  17. I use lol way too much. I'm now saying "heh" or "haha" or "hehe". Just when i say lol, i either laughing, or making a smug smerk.

    I find using HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!! to be a bit awkward, so I use LOL on TB whenever I LOL. I use lol often in IM's, quite often even if I'm not LOLing, but I never LOL on TB if I'm not actually LOLing. LOLing on a place like TB when not actually LOLing is just silly. in cases when a LOL would be normally be used even when not actually LOLing, a :D is a good substitute, as it does not represent LOL, but rather something similar to using LOL when not actually LOLing.
  20. I sometimes laugh when i type LOL, but only sometimes.
