Think you could lay off of the LOL's?

You can't follow up all of you're text messages, email messages, and Facebook postings with an LOL unless it's funny and you actually laughed.

Discuss.

That would be asking Tude to stop responding in third person and to not include any emoticons in her responses. She would not be the same. Plus her 50 bookmarked emoticon websites would miss her. sniff.

LOL 4-evar!!!

(is there an emoticon that has a lit lighter holding it up like at a concert? - Weeeee are the People, WEEEEE ARE THE PEOPLE ....)

(k, so SHE's had a few beers)

I agree and furthermore, I try to be quantitative with my use:

If I really like a post, but don't need to respond on the thread, I will send a PM to compliment the author.

It was called rhetorical skill. Unfortunately, it has gone the way of the woolly mammoth, the steam locomotive, and a small US government.

In my case, everything I say, type or think is sarcastic, just so you know.
