What does LIQ stand for in chat and text messages?

Laughing inside quietly

If someone responds to a humorous message you sent with LIQ, it means they are "laughing inside quietly." This person likely wants to LOL, but can't because doing so would be inappropriate.

For example, if you send your SO a funny video while they are at work, they may respond with LIQ. This means that your SO found the video you sent funny, but doesn't want to disrupt their workplace by laughing out loud.
