We all use it (and of course I'm talking about "lol") but I wonder who made it ? oO, is kind of stupid but still I would like to know the author of this abbr. XD
and if possible about "lmao" and "rofl".

I personally always hated stuff like that...I mean when people start to ask "what the **** does WTF mean?!" it just not worth it....say haha if you are "laughing out loud"...I mean really...who cares if you really are? No one likes you *starts to cry, because no one really likes him*...haha I'm just messing, but really...I think saying stuff like lol is the same as typing "u" when you only need two more letters to write "you"....is it really that hard?

I know what you mean... I spent the first 3 months of playing PSO on the DC without knowing its exact meaning. I thought it was some kind of "hello" until an acquaintance of mine told me "what the hell are you laughing at?".

I dont believe that "lol" derived from the same place the first 3ll7 chat derived from. Somebody told me it was a california group of kids that started it, not sure though anybody know?

LOL, Kaiser in his n00bie period :D

Lol is an official dutch word, which means the same as 'fun' ;)

hehe that reminds me i used to tell my friends "lol" as in "loel" the actual pronoune of the three letters. I was a dork lol. But it was cool, i never knew it was an actual dutch word though otherwise i wouldnt of used it like that lol cause i did not want to make fun of another language.

come on ppl, it must have a beggining, just as "ok" had one back in the 1800's when a political party made it in the us (it was a party that the initials were [obviously] "O.K." {I can't remember the name -_-"} and if you were with them you were fine or "ok") anyway just like that , I'm pretty sure "lol" had a beggining.

I guess no one made it, It's just a simple abbreviation whose roots originated from those chatters who are too lazy to type whole words. same as "AFK" "BB" etc..

" lol " is the easiest way to give someone an answer in an online game when he/she is muttering rubbish while you are swinging swords at monsters. :D

Your story of the word "OK" is a bit messed up. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okay

There's written record of it's use before the presidential election of 1840, when the democrats use the expression "OK" to refer to the candidate Martin Van Buren.

Anyway, Wikipedia has not so much information about LOL, though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lol
