    internet slang

    Internet slang is really annoying. I can barely keep up with all the words. What does IMO mean by the way?

    Oh and rofl is the most annoying. You aren't even laughing most of the time..

    "IMHO" is probably one of the only acceptable shorthands I'll ever use. "In my humble opinion" is quite a lot to type versus 4 letters.

    RTFM is quite handy on occasion.

    Hmm... Looks like what happens when my cat walks across my keyboard.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I've never used "LOL." I'm more of the "hehehe" type person.

    I know most of them, but what does LYLAB mean? As i have seen it used i would take it in context that the first two letters are "love you" or some variation thereof

    Love you like a baby?
    Love you like a brother?
    Love you like a boy?
