Is it okay to use LOL and smiley faces 🙂 in the most formal texts?…scholarly papers and books? I’m a fan of including all of the most modern cultural cliches in my writings, simply because its representative of this age. I’ve recently received some mail asking about my use of the “LOL”, suggesting that its inappropriate in philosophy. When I read texts from times passed I recognize so many terms and scenarios that are foreign in modernity, and I’m sure that much more than those three letters will be antiquated in due time… And now I am compelled to use LOL whenever I find something funny, just to ensure that my sens of humor is preserved…LOL Down with rules and intellectual protocol!
