      I hope i’m not alone here, but i often have no-idea what all these abbreviations that people use actually mean. I mean some are obvious lol, but some are just confusing!

      Can we get some sort of list for the more obscure ones?

      What the hell does PMSL mean? I keep reading it as Pre-menstrual stupid language!

            I’ve got most of them sorted. But some of GL’s leave me stumped.

                    i searched for a dictionary and found:

                    http://www.netlingo.com/emailsh.cfm

                    http://www.anapsid.org/internet/smileys.html#net

                    http://www.acronymfinder.com/

                    now we know what they mean which are your favourites?

                    mine is probably RATFLMAO:crazy_fre:crazy_fre

                      AFAIK = As far as I know
                      IIRC = If I remember correctly
