Maybe, having ROTFL, they can't get up.  What I want to know if, 
is they're really ROTFL, how can they be typing in the fact that 
they're ROTFL, and if they're not ROTFL, then they have no 
business claiming to be ROTFL.  Maybe we need to propose FLIROTFL 
(Feel Like I'm ROTFL), or maybe MMWTROTFL (Makes Me Want TO 
ROTFL).  

One also must wonder whether ROTFLers ROTFL about other things 
elsewhere in life; if so, how come we don't see them ROTFLing out 
and about, in the post offices, supermarkets, offices, libraries, 
etc.  Perhaps they have a twelve step program, although I guess 
if they can take any steps, they aren't ROTFL and therefore don't 
need it.  Of course, we can't be _sure_ they're always ROTFLing; 
perhaps some of these are people who simply forgot to take their 
meds, or glazed over waiting for MOSAIC to download full screen 
images at 14.4.
