    Default Forum Abbreviations what do they stand for?

    Throughout the forum you'll see groups of letters that don't appear to be words. This is because they're common abbreviations for common phrases. If you know of anything that aren't in this list, please reply and I'll add them.

    BTW: means "By the way"
    IMO means "In my opinion"
    IMHO means "In my humble opinion"
    LOL means "laugh out loud"
    WTF means a dramatic "I don't understand" :tongue:
    BS means "bull errr crap"
    AFAIK means "As far as I know"
    j/k means "just kidding"
    ATM means "At the moment"
    IIRC means "If I remember correctly"
    ROFLMAO means "Rolling on floor laughing my ass off"
    GFY means "I don't quite agree with you"
    NFW means "I don't quite agree with you"
    GTFO means "get the ummm.... heck out"
