    Who could forget DRIADA

    (Dakota rube is a dumb ass)


    Okay, who did you piss off?

    BIFF Brown is for farmer
    ILITL I like it the lamb


    ITITL would be fine, but brown is for farmer is so meaningful, so impactful, so important, that it would only be respectful to write it out in its entirety. Of course, when typing it, one should hold his right hand over his heart.

    Sorry, I paraphrased.

    Note that mine can double as "Asshole, Be Silent or Accept Banning."

    OPP.

    Also, we should standardize Style Forum and Superfuture.

    We are SF, they are ST for Supertalk, or possibly Supfut.

    You forgot NTTAWWT = Not that there's anything wrong with that

    And a personal favorite of mine that appeared in The Onion a few years ago:

    LODASM = Logged on dressed as Sailor Moon

    (I never have and never will, JFTR = just for the record.)

    A.P.C. isn't just APC it's "Atelier the production et de crÃ[​IMG]ation". That's like saying:

    IBM = IBM the computer company
    instead of
    IBM = International Business Machines (Corporation)

    Maybe we should also ad:

    LSD = Latest Shoe Damage
