To get really annoyed by "loooooooool&qu ot;??

(36 Posts)

I can just about tolerate "lol", I've used it occasionally <<shameface>>

But what the fuck is "loooooooooool" all about?

Do you really laugh out out out out out out out out out loud??

(I know I know...first world problems, petty etc, I might start hash-tagging in a minute)

Hmmmm...sorry about thread title, that's supposed to be in quotation marks.

I have a friend who writes 'lolololololololol' it's very annoying. What happened to good, old fashioned 'haha' or 'that's so funny'?

I must admit I do like ROFL though blush

I like ROFLMFAO even better.

I don't mind proper acronyms...I'm partial to the odd PMSL...

But my inner pedant feels the rage when I see loooooooool....I've seen lololololololol as well actually, that annoys me too.

AngelsLieToKeepControl Mon 07-Oct-13 11:55:05

ROFLMFAO is a good one grin

I had a rather highbrow discussion about PMSL recently, my friend insists on writing PML because 'myself' is all one word. It just looks wrong though.

That's a good point actually...I've just outed my self (sic) as a hypocrite blush

I don't get why people write, for example, kkkkkkkkkkiss, when they probably mean kiiiiiiiiiiiiss.

YANBU. Most definitely not. looool said aloud sounds like the sort of noise someone very drunk would make if they were simultaneously laughing and vomiting.

This: Mmmmmwwwah!... pisses me off, put 'x'. Or don't attempt to kiss me at all via text!

ROFLCOPTER

Don't even get me started on "Gawjus!!!"

SaskiaRembrandtVampireHunter Mon 07-Oct-13 15:31:15

What does rolfcopter mean? I get the rofl bit, and I know what a copter is, but combined, what is that?

SaggyIsHavingAPinkKitten Mon 07-Oct-13 15:31:37

WTF does ROFLCOPTER mean???

KillerKoalaFace Mon 07-Oct-13 15:35:31

I don't like any acronyms that describe laughter levels because the only accurate one is SALTS (smiled a little then stopped).

But I have to say when I read ROFL it makes me think of Scooby Doo. Rofl seems like a sound he'd make...

Dahlen Mon 07-Oct-13 15:37:26

LOLOL always makes me picture zombies for some reason. confused

I think I am going to start using SALTS to see if anyone texts back WTF or if it catches on. grin

KatoPotato Mon 07-Oct-13 15:37:36

OMG, I never thought anyone else on MN would know ROFLCOPTER...

KillerKoalaFace Mon 07-Oct-13 15:39:50

I'll join you Dahlen. We might start a craze! SALTS!

Sindarella Mon 07-Oct-13 15:57:46

My DC have started saying lol instead of laughing. How lazy!
It really gets on my nerves.

KellyElly Mon 07-Oct-13 16:13:47

They are doing a big lol rather than a small one grin

MrsDeVere Mon 07-Oct-13 16:55:45

I have never understood looooooooooooooooool. It makes NO sense.

It means laugh out out out out out out (and so on) loud.

I use lol/lulz to annoy people. It amuses me.

MrsDeVere Mon 07-Oct-13 16:57:46

The same person who wrote me a whole FB message comprising of one big looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool

also....sent....me...messages......written....like......this......wtaf.....is......all.....that.....about......lol?

I think I prefer LOLOCERAPTOR over ROFLCOPTER. Although bother are good.

My favourite is LSHABOWCO

laughed so hard a bit of wee came out

But I'm blaming my advanced state of pregnancy for that grin
