    Apparently 3.0 doesn't auto-capitalize LOLs anymore!!! It must be enough of a reason to upgrade and even pay $10 for ipod users - Link

    (Though I am against people who say nothing but lol all day long :))

    I didn't know it ever did. If you type it in caps a few times does the auto-correct remember it?

    I don't think I ever noticed one way or another. But then again, I'm old school - I was using "hehe" before "lol" became as commonplace as it is today.

    This has been discussed for ages! Couldn't you have done a search for "LOL" before you posted a new thread about this?

    What pisses me off about this is the "Lol"s. I usualy end a sentence then say lol. I want it to be either lol or LOL but not Lol.

    Lol.

    DAMMIT!

    Ditto. I capitalize all of them*, so now it's wrong for the way I type. :(


    And WTF has always been capitalized, IIRC. (*see? :p)

    Why do people put LOL if they didn't Laugh Out Loud?

    i dont ever use lol, i find use haha and adding "ha"s depending on how funny i actually think it is meters my actual laughter pretty well :D and if i ever do use lol its sarcastic and i usually spell it lulz or something like that..

    WTF does bother me tho, cuz i use that a lot, haha (see)

    I noticed the lower case lol too right away. I wish they would stop capitalizing the word Townhome in the middle of a sentence. Why on earth does that word always get capitalized.

    It's the fact people can't tell context through text sometimes and even though it's LOL still question you because it's all caps, I use lol and if it's really funny LOL with all caps being used to emphasize
