LOL – Changing My Internet Laugh

I was instructed last year, while chatting online with my college student son, that I was completely in error to use LOL, because it was not supposed to be capitalized…according to him, it was like I was yelling my laughter when things really weren’t that funny.  I explained to him that because I am old and have been on the internet longer than he has, that we old farts have been using LOL since it was invented, and that after all, it did mean “laughing OUT LOUD.”  This resulted in an hour long discussion (well, at least it seemed like it) about how he was right and I was wrong, so he has now cured me of using LOL with him.  I am now afraid to laugh online.
