warota is often shortened "w".

"orz" is a pictograph of a guy on his knees. It's a simplification of "›|P|_". The exact meaning escapes me, though.

The meaning varies. It can be used to declare that you are sorry for something while avoiding an elaborate apology. More commonly it is used as a sign of being frustrated, though.
