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]

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]

here is what has been posted earlier and should just boggle your mind![wacko]
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!
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
wicket evil grin
Close? there’s a couple I didn’t work out, but they’ll come to me in time.[biggrin]

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]
WOW Calvin, ya sure know what I am talking about better than I do myself hehe. I was wondering what I had just written- LOL.
Oh BTW, BFYK= before you know, sorry FWIW for FUBAR- should be BYK.
Celivia, you’re in good form Feeling good, huh?
I have seen the acronym (if it is one) SS somewhere, anyone know what that stands for?
I can think of 9Things it could stand for, but I better keep that to myself hehe.
Any guesses? I have no clue gggr.

SS = So sorry?
