Re: Abreviations

It means the poster is a 12 year old girl with absolutely no grasp of the english language, you are better off not understanding them.

Re: Abreviations

Whoa boyz!

Just an OBVIOUS misunderstanding here.

Kisuco, what he mean't was that you don't need to know the Abreviations because they are childish.

I have to disagree "elcid" They get used too much on here and it's hard to understand what people are saying if you don't know them. Trust me...I was lost half the time when I first joined this board a year and a half ago.

Oh...and as I'm sure you've noticed....I'm still lost


Kisuco -

AANJ = All access neck joint.

He/she needs to know what these type of Abreviations stand for

BTW = I guess I'm a child too because I spelled boyz with a "Z"

thanks for the clear up...
I think that the internet language must be "quick", and the abreviations helps a lot while writing short answers

Re: Abreviations

The real question is why "abbreviation" is such a long word.

?

Re: Abreviations

Actually, LOL is "Laughing Out Loud"
LMAO- Laughing My A$$ Off
LMFAO- Obvious, no?
FWIW - For What It's Worth
YMMV - Your Mileage May Vary (Means it's a little different for everyone)
