the motive behind gratuitous abbrev usage shifted from the commentary on internet acronyms to the commentary on the commentary on internet acronyms sometime around July 23, 2009, ii(imho)rc.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okay#Boston_abbreviation_fad

The abbreviation fad began in Boston in the summer of 1838 … OFM, "our first men," and used expressions like NG, "no go," GT, "gone to Texas," and SP, "small potatoes." Many of the abbreviated expressions were exaggerated misspellings, a stock in trade of the humorists of the day. One predecessor of okay was OW, "oll wright."[19]

The general fad is speculated to have existed in spoken or informal written U.S. English for a decade or more before its appearance in newspapers. OK's original presentation as "all correct" was later varied with spellings such as "Oll Korrect" or even "Ole Kurreck".
