There appears to be some confusion over the meaning of the three-letter acronym (or TLA) 'LOL', often seen in instant messaging, emails, text messages etc.

While most people (including myself) take it to mean 'Laughs Out Loud', a minority take it to mean 'Lots of Love'.

Don't believe me? A friend of mine recently received a text from his mother saying: "Uncle Robert passed away at 3:00 this morning LOL xx"

I have to admit I laughed out loud...
