    • 2009, Malcolm Venable, "Once-welcome LOL is now virtually DOA, and here's why", The Virginian-Pilot, 22 September 2009:
      Perhaps the worst offender is the LOLer who has no grasp of nuance or subtlety. He's like a comedian who comes down from the stage to sit on your lap, tell you a joke and then say, 'Get it?'
    • 2011, Octavia Lehman, "In Lehman's Terms", The Sounding Board (Grace College), Volume 58, Issue 2, 8 September 2011, page 7:
      When I actually laugh at what someone has written to me, I like to insert I AM LEGITIMATELY LAUGHING OUT LOUD, because it differentiates me from the frequent LOLers.

      The talk show host created the now international day of action in 2010. From the start it was a huge success, as Kimmel said on his show: “We killed off millions of LOLers and OMGers.”
