Hi All. I was prompted by a friend the other day, to explain some of the shorthand abbreviations used on forums (this and others). Now, i'm by no means an authority on this but i've gathered together a few. What with the proliferation of new members daily, it may help to decipher some of the terms in common use. Some people use them, some don't. I don't wish to patronize either, i'm sure there are many more. AFAIK - As Far As I Know AFK - Away from keyboard AKA - Also Known As BRB - be right back BTW - By The Way FWIW - For what's it worth FYA - For Your Amusement FYI - For Your Information HTH - Hope This Helps IANAL - I am not a lawyer IIRC - If I Recall Correctly IMHO - In My Humble Opinion IMO - In My Opinion J/K - just kidding K.I.S.S - Keep It Simple Stupid! LMAO - Laughing My Ass Off OMG - Oh, My Gosh OTOH - On The Other Hand OWOA - One Way Or Another PITA - pain in the ass ROFL - Rolling On Floor Laughing RTFM - Read The F****ng Manual TA - Thanks Again TIA - Thanks In Advance TTYL - talk to you later Oh ..........TTFN, DS.
