I have never, nor will I ever use the term "LOL" when speaking to someone online. If a person says something funny, they'll just have to trust that I laughed. I'm not even entirely sure what it stands for. Laugh out loud? Laugh on Line? Who knows? But in the case of the genius with whom I Im'd last night, it must stand for Loser On Line, or Low intelligence on line. Her entire contribution to the conversation was "LOL". No matter what I wrote, she responded with "LOL." If I was doing an online stand up act, I would have killed. But I was trying to have a semi-intelligent conversation, and I felt like taking my own life. If she were my 9 year old niece, it might have been cute, but for a 31 year old woman, not so much. And surprise, surprise, she's a special ed teacher too. I just always assumed the special ed part referred to the students, not the teachers.
