edit Origin of LOL, ROLF, etc
Lol started as a warcry when Gordon Brown iiv went to war with his hands up screaming "LOL!!!!!!!!!!" to freighten his enemy, the Spanish Armada.
| <--- Gordon Brown iiv \________| <-- Spanish Armada
If you really want to know the origin of LOL, etc. then you need to go back, way back to 1986 to a piece of software called The MajorBBS. The MajorBBS had built in chat actions which were abbreviated. Some of these actions were called LOL, ROFL, HUG, etc.
Example of the MajorBBS chat room:
You are in the main channel. Sysop, Kari, Billy and Dogma are here with you. Type "?" for assistance. *** :lol *** Y :
With the advent of the internet, MajorBBS users migrated to IRC in their own selective groups, bring the action commands with them. Hense, these "actions" would later spread and evolve into the Internet to be used and loved by all.

Is it just me or is this article too close to the actual defintion of LOL? Where's the satire, where's the irony of the situation? I know the page is protected but somebody should inject some wit into this article if they can edit it 188.8.131.52 07:55, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

LOL really stands for "Land of Leather" (advaticing conspiracy)
edit Laughing out loud
LOL also means "Laughing out loud".

"long o" is ambiguous. "log" has a "long o" and so does "loop", but they're not pronounced the same.
