    gotta = got to. I've gotta = I have got to = I have to = I must. мне надо. Usually people write I gotta instead of I've gotta.

    wanna = want to
    gonna = going to

    lol = laughs out loud (used on the internet like: )
    lil = little (usually, i think)

    не за что

    And other question.
    In many russian forums (for example, my favorite forum http://www.nn.ru/community/gorod/) peoples using sentence IMHO, that it means In My Humble Opinion.
    I was surprise at this forum I have not found the given sentence.
    Why?

    Some other internet abbreviations:

    AFAIK: As Far As I Know
    IIRC: If I Recall Correctly
    ROFLMAO: Rolling On the Floor Laughing My Ass Off
    IM(H)O: In My (Humble) Opinion
    TBH: To Be Honest

    Some more examples of "shorthand" spelling or misspelling you can meet on the 'Net:

    Sup and wazzup = what's up
    Prolly = probably
    y = why
    n e = any
    ne1 = anyone
    w8=wait
    m8=mate
    gr8=great (well, the last 3 ones border on the "1337-talk", which is a separate subject)
    cya = see you
    2 = to and too
    u = you
    ur= your
    On the Net, this kind of shorthand is used mostly by kids, younger teens and/or non-educated people.


    Abbreviations:

    HTH = hope this helps (e.g. after you answer someone's question)

    Besides ROFLMAO (see above) people often use ROFL and LMAO.
