Question LOL???

I guess lol is used in IMs everywhere now, but where did it come from anyway? People just started using it, which is okay. But now it seems to show up in professional e-mails that I get from people and it's starting to get irritating. It even has it's own Wiki page!!

I see it quite a bit on professional e-mails and it's everywhere else too. I thought it meant lots of laughs at first.

I think people got too lazy for smileys and started making weird acronyms for simple things like 'rofl'(rolling on the floor laughing):headbang: :headbang: :headbang:
