LOL has become quite overused (Hank Moody in Californication even jokes around with the use of it, as he's a writer). I will defend its use a bit
though. Here in Southern Africa, we tend to IM a lot on our phones, as a lot of people don't have computers. Apps like Messenger and Whatsapp are
common place, and with the advent of (cheap) touchscreen phones, typing hahahahah is quite the mission. When one replies to a proper text message with
LOL or ROFLMAO...that's when I lose it.
I am a grammar Nazi though.
