Definition: Lag is the delay between when you send your text and the other person sees it. Depending on server loads, this delay can be almost non-existent, or it can be monstrous, up to 15 or 20 minutes (hence the use of the term "lag monster" ["Oh, no, the lag monster swallowed up half the chan!"].).
