    You can use it or not or ignore it. Not sure why it's an issue. If you don't like it, don't do it.

    Well, I know one thing. That's for sure.

    Not good enough. That's like saying if you don't approve of picking your nose in public, just don't do it.

    No one else should do it, either.

    That's just how it is. It's that stupid.

    Of course, as pointed out earlier, I am an unsuitable candidate to bring this to the forum's attention

    I hear what you're saying, but here's the REAL reason why people do it: When texting, it is very hard to convey emotion, and the worst one to try to convey is sarcasm. So as not to offend, or hurt someone's feelings when texting something we mean purely as a joke, we put "LOL" after the sentence to show we were only joking.
    So yes; I "LOL" a lot.

    It doesn't make any sense for you to "LOL", and here's why:
    "Ha" imparts the same meaning as you are describing, is one less letter and hence one-third more efficient

    That is true, but just 1 "ha" won't work; you gotta say "ha-ha" and that is 1 more letter than "LOL". Puts more wear & tear on your keyboard, and is therefore 25% LESS efficient.

    One "ha" is sufficient. You can "heh" if you must, and you will be gaining the advantage of being more authentic than "LOL".

    Because, you almost certainly did not actually laugh out loud.

    Of course you didn't; it is just a metaphor that is implied. With just 1 "ha", you can't really express that something was actually that funny, "ha" just sounds so disinterested. For REALLY funny stuff, I use "ROTFLMAO". For absolutely hysterical stuff, I use "ROTFLMFAO".

    Wrong. I don't want anyone to look at me. I want everyone to listen up though.


    It's like the music stand thread. It just makes you look dumb :)

    You are actually NOT looking at me, anymore than anyone is laughing out loud
