When Myface goes wrong...

People who think that LOL means 'lots of love' are the same people who insist on pronouncing 'Nike' as 'Nike-ee' and think it's still okay to use the adjective 'neat' to mean 'good'. I mean, really.

That said, my fella's dad writes English textbooks for German schoolkids and I had to do some real tongue-biting when I read a chapter from his latest one, all about textspeak, which did indeed gloss LOL as 'lots of love'. Despite the fact that even German (and French) kids use LOL to mean 'laugh out loud' these days.
