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?

loving AATK! Could have done with that when I lost my last job, as it was the reason why!!! I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what ppl mean, and IMO some of these acronyms are getting longer that the real words.

My personal favorite is ::POOF:: (=Goodbye!)
Also like/use –
GMTA (=Great Minds Think Alike)
BWTHDIK (=But What The Hell Do I Know)
IPN (=I Post Naked!)
IHA (=I Hate Acronyms!)
Wow, loving some of these smilies too! Who needs words, or acronyms, when you can say it with a smile!
