    Too much can definitely be annoying. I sometimes double up a lol in a sentence and go back to take one out so I don't seem hysterical :P
    Once here and there is fine and helps communicate emotions well

    I do think it's often over used. I sometimes think to myself "Really? You're really laughing out loud at that?"
    To me though, it no longer actually stands for "laugh out loud"...it's like it has become a new word of its own with a slightly different meaning. If I use it it's not because I laughed out loud.

    Does anyone else get what I mean? It's hard to explain it but I doubt I'm the only one....surely...

    I can't stand the use of the word LOL, especially when I've told someone something serious and they come back with a response with a LOL on the end, it isn't even close to being funny so don't make it into humour.

    My Dad bless him uses LOL, he thinks it means lots of love so he's the only one I don't mind

    I think I know where you are coming from - to you, is it just a way of saying "that's funny"?

    Perhaps I am taking "lol" too literally
