Netspeak...or what the heck is ROFLMAO?

     Recently, I have received several emails from friends and family inquiring what all of my little abbreviations mean. For instance, when I am chatting online or doing a rapid email or face book post, I might type something like this:

Im SS 4 dly, uber busy atm, ttyl roflmao

this translates to ... i am so sorry for the delay but i have been very busy at the moment, talk to you later, (roll on the floor and laugh my ass off)

     To make things a bit easier for you all, I have found a posting from Pogo, under the Ms. Netiquette forum that has a huge list of almost every conceivable netspeach abbreviation in existence. I hope I don't need permission to post this, after all I am giving credit to Pogo for posting.
