    I have always been sooo curious to know WHO MADE UP the following abbreviations that everyone seems to use.(I know the meanings.)

    1.LOL

    2.IMHO

    3.BTW

    4.ROTF

    5.TTYL

    It must be fascinating for the person who created them to observe!

    I don’t think they’re someone’s “creation. I think they just became!

    Samples:

    LQTM-laughing quietly to myself

    IWJW-I was just wondering

    ATH-according to halacha

    WADR-with all due respect

    WDYJITL-why don’t you jump in the lake (just joking)

    WADR and LQTM are well established abbreviations. I think you can take credit for the other 3.

    “WADR-with all due respect” already long exists — exactly as that.

    ROTF (and ROFL/ROTFL) has been around for a while, maybe even since the late 90’s. It became very popular more recently.

    Kapusta – its been around since at least the early 80’s, and perhaps longer.

    eclipse: I don’t know if I had specifically seen it before. I just googled to see if anyone used it, and they had.
