Forum Shorthand

Hey there,

I'm not really a noob, but I just wanted to find out what some of the forum shorthand means. I know that lol = laughing out loud and lmao = laughing my ass off, but I would like to know if there are any others that I (and others) may not know. Thanks!

We tend not to use that much shorthand in the forum.
There is a lot of it in chat but that's to keep up with the flow of the conversation.
Here, carefully constructed sentences are more appreciated.

yeah, i see relatively little shorthand at tfp.
there are some i think i've seen fairly often though

btw = by the way
imo = in my opinion
imho = in my humble opinion
so = signifigant other
bf = boyfriend
gf = girlfriend

Not safe for work. It's meant as a warning to those working that if they open the thread at work, it's at their own risk of getting caught by their boss.

There's also 'stfu' for shut the fuck up. I don't know anyone who uses it in any way other than to mock the people who apparently say it seriously.

There are hundreds of little acronyms out there. Like Roy G Biv, if you wanted to tell the message board you were describing the rainbow.
