Let's try to not use "LOL" in the New Year. What other Acronyms or words do you feel may have run their course?

Explained by Sukiesnow...

It's almost getting like a cliche... Instead, though,,,,what shall I use? "Ha ha ha"... maybe... "That was really entertaining." "I enjoyed that." They do sound more thoughtful...

Oh some people really over use that or use it in times where it just doesn't fit so it wouldn't hurt my feelings to never see it again.

They way I have been feeling lately if I really expressed my feelings I would either get smacked, fired, or banned from somewhere.(hehe)

There are a lot of words that no longer have any meaning because they have been overused. Usually they were used to attempt to intimidate or demean someone because they had a different point of view. It didn't work.

I think it's important to have "words" like lol. We've reached a time when a lot of our communication is text based but we've still got the same old traits of communicating non-verbally. In other words, we're still used to communicating with gestures and tone of voice. Little things like lol or smiley faces help us translate those via text.
