Internet and E-Mail Acronyms

Acronyms for everyday use!

Here is a short list of some common acronyms used on the internet. You may come across these acronyms while surfing the web, visiting bulletin boards, chatting online, or in your email. Wherever they may be, you will most certainly feel a HUGE amount of confusion if you aren't familiar with them. I remember the first time I had to ask "I know this is probably a dumb question, but what does 'IMHO' mean?" :) Anyways, in case you don't know, there are a lot of acronym's floating around. Acronyms are abbreviations wherein a phrase is named by the first letters of each word in the phrase, like, AAMOF= As A Matter Of Fact. So, if you come across some strange concoction of capital letters, you can bet it is an acronym of some sort! And, if you can't find it here, you can try the more comprehensive list of acronyms, which lists more of the lesser used acronyms. So good luck in using these acronyms... Remember, YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)!
