I've said "Imoe" (IMO), "Imhoe" (IMHO), and "Loll" (LOL), and even "Imshow" (IMNSHO) aloud (although I don't think I went as far as "Rotfull" [ROTFL], though I've heard "Rotfullmow" [ROTFLMAO]). Around the time I caught myself doing it on a regular basis, I started excising most such acronyms from my online text because I don't want to write things I wouldn't want to be caught saying aloud. :D -- Paul
