    Ok guys and gals .
    I have spent hours going through forum posts and some are down right hilarious [laugh4][upsidedown] especially when I put my own interpretation on your abbreviations and acronyms.
    Some are just plain [confused2].I reckon some people just make up their own for the fun of it.
    How about posting here your interpretation of all abbs and acrothingies as a glossary so the rest of us mere mortals can understand what yer sayin [blink]
    Cheers,
    Greg

    Hi everyone,

    so far I have worked out every abbreviation etc with the exception of LOL. In my experience, LOL means either lots of love; or in the industry I used to work in, little old lady.

    So shine some light on me[blink]

    Hi all,
    here is what has been posted earlier and should just boggle your mind![wacko]

    Acronyms

    Many of these acronyms pre-date the Web and come from the old days of bulletin boards and CompuServe.

    Here’s a list of ones commonly used on CompuServe (some more commonly than others):

    AAMOF – As a matter of fact
    AFAICT – As far as I can tell
    AFAIK – As far as I know
    BRB – Be right back (during live chat)
    BTW – By the way
    CAM – Couldn’t agree more
    D&T – Drink & type
    EG – Evil grin
    EMFJI – Excuse me for jumping in
    FUBAR – F***ed up beyond all recognition
    FUD – Fear, uncertainty and doubt
    FWIW – For what it’s worth
    FYI – For your information
    FX – Fingers crossed
    GD&R – Grinning, ducking and running
    GD&WVVF – Grinning, ducking and walking very, very fast
    GFETE – Grinning from ear to ear
    GIGO – Garage In, Gospel Out
    IAE – In any event
    IANAL – I am not a lawyer (but)
    IIRC – If I recall correctly
    IMHO – In my humble opinion
    IMO – In my opinion
    IOW – In other words
    ISTM – It seems to me
    ITIGTTU – I think I’m going to throw up
    IWFM – It works for me
    LOL – Laughing out loud
    NWS – Not with standing
    OIC – Oh I see
    OTOH – On the other hand
    PITA – Pain in the arse
    POV – Point of view
    PMFJI – Pardon me for jumping in
    ROFL – Rolling on floor, laughing
    ROFLMAO – Rolling on the floor laughing my arse off
    ROFLOL – Rolling on floor, laughing out loud
    ROFM – Rolling on the floor, moaning
    RSN – Real soon now
    RTFM – Read the f***ing manual
    SFTH – Straight from the heart
    SNAFU – Situation normal all f***ed up
    TBH – To be honest
    TIA – Thanks in advance
    TIC – Tongue in cheek
    TVM – Thanks very much
    TTFN – Ta-ta for now
    TW – Touch wood
    VBG – Very big grin
    WEG – Wicked evil grin
    WRT – With respect to
    YHTNOTH – You hit the nail on the head

    feel free to add as I’m keeping these for when my kids grow up enough to use them on mobile phone messages! They are currently 3 and 2 years old. I like to be prepared!

    Cheers

    PMFJI, but IWFM because IIRC, FYI AFAIK a while ago this topic came up and ISTM, FWIW, that all these acronyms are IMHO not APITA at all but a lot of ROFLOL and I say this SFTH: RTFM WRT you- and BFYK you’ll soon say, (instead of WTF) OIC; IOW IWFM and you’ll be able to B&T without FUD, AAMOF!
    BTW, IAE, this was all TIC.

    So what you are saying is:
    “Pardon me for jumping in, but it works for me because if I recall correctly, for your information as far as I know a while ago this topic came up and it seems to me, for what its worth, that all these acronyms are in my honest/humble opinion not a pain in the a..se at all but a lot of rolling on the floor laughing out loud and I say this straight from the heart: read the f…king manual with respect you- and BFYK you’ll soon say, (instead of what the f…k) Oh I see; in other words it works for me and you’ll be able to BS and Type without fear, uncertainty and doubt, as a matter of fact!
    by the way, in any event, this was all tongue in cheeck.
    Tata for now

    Close? there’s a couple I didn’t work out, but they’ll come to me in time.[biggrin]
    Awesome effort on such short notice![party]

    I tend to like the over use (abuse???) of !!!! and ???? that so many find annoying!!! [blink]

    But my real favourite is IMHO, which was explained to me as being In My Honest Opinion, when in fact, I was later correctly informed as being In My HUMBLE Opinion, hence to avoid any upset, I just use IMO (plain old, In My Opinion) which is good enough and is still both honest and humble, just not stated!!!! [biggrin]

    Cheers,

    Jo
