Toby Anstis, my old friend at Heart 106.2, has just found out that "LOL" doesn't mean "Lots of Love". It means "Laugh out loud".
Actually, although I'm LOLing at his naivety, I also originally interpreted it in the very same way the first few times I saw it on my computer screen. It took me some time to work it out, I just thought people were being extra friendly due to an excess of Ecstasy tablets or something.
It disappointed me that crude, cynical humour rather than beautiful, spiritual love was being spread over our brave new technological world.
Surely there should be a "lots of love" type sign-off for non-misanthropes like me and Toby?
