That's not AOL-SPEAK. LMAO and a few other abbreviations like ROFL and IMHO go all the way back to USENET news groups, and quite probably back all the way to private BBS systems.

I'm pretty sure Charly here's right. Old man, what's with that cause I wasn't coming on to you. Anyway, abbreviations like that have been used since at least WWII in the radio transmissions.

Care to elaborate on how something like "LMAO" was used for radio? A similar code would be used for log keeping but not for talking on a radio. Code words would be used for radio but it was and is nothing like "LMAO".

alright....well laf you caught me in a jam. I could say friends might use them when bad-mouthing eachother in a forbidden zone. Or how about when men were allowed to talk to their girlfriends. I'm pretty sure they'd say cfm instead of come **** me. I mean I don't know for sure, and if it came across in that time period it was for probably one of these reasons.

My point was you don't use something like "lmao" over a radio. LMAO is just a form of type speak and has been around as long as there has been "instantaneous" or semi-instantaneous written transmission. I'm sure it could have been used before BBS systems but it has been used more frequently in situations like instant messenger where people are trying to get their word across quickly. Itís been a big part of computers since their beginning. Acronyms aren't used over radio either. What is used is either code words or actual codes that need to built and broken using the code book designated for that circuit. I can't go into detail about what the code would look like but it would be a series of letters and numbers with tacs and periods. Letters are said phonetically (alfa, bravo, charlie, etc.) and have nothing to do with the word or groups of words they represent.

Morse code is just a series of beeps and pauses in designated patterns that represent letters.
