Had this discussion with someone recently... I always thought it was 'Lots of Laughs'. Anyone else know this version? - Kazuhiko
I always thought it was 'lots of laughs' as well... which is subtley different (I can think of lots of things I'd type lol to in a quiet "that's funny" way that didn't come close to making me laugh out loud) - Sally
I have heard it used to mean 'Lots of Love', but not the version you describe - Emperor
That would expain why Jackie signs her twister emails LOL. I thought she just thought we were all strange and funny...
Probably one of those 'irrelevant but true' things :) I have come across LOL for 'lots of love' although not as commonly as 'laughs out loud'. Context ought to make it clear, although thinking about it, given the apparent (il)literacy of many 'net users, this ought not to be taken for granted >:> --MikeJeggo
