Do you use it in your daily life?

Well, maybe it is not very good to start a blog with a question... A person does not understand what I mean by saying "it". What is "it" in this question? What will this man write about? Anyway.... I want to ask about such a phenomenon as Internet slang. I think all of use use it more or less when we write our blogs, comment on someone's blog or just communicate with our friends in Skype, ICQ and so one... All these "ROFL"s, "LOL"s, "WTF"s, "DWAI"s and so one... How often do you use them? Do you like writing such shortenings in your comments for example? I must admit, that "LOL" is my favourite. Lol! I found out that there would be the whole dictionary of such shortenings and words which are called to be Internet slang. Here are some examples from that dictionary (a lot of them were unfamiliar for me before!!):

WHACK - Bad

VANILLA - Unexciting, conventional
