Definitions of today's internet lingo - Nettiquite

Okay, I admit that I need more than a little help here.:D

Hello, my name is Reed and I am a "forum newbie". I have been a forum newbie for 383 days.

Can someone provide me the definitions of today's forum internet "lingo" :?:

I came from the day of "LOL", "LMAO" and "BHAK" :D

Moved and edited the title to be a little more descriptive-HJ
"For those who have fought for it, FREEDOM has a taste that the protected will never know."

Don't feel bad Reed. I've been on the internet for years and never bothered to learn most of the "lingo". I know "LOL" and a few variations of "ROTF..." but that's about it. By the way, what is "BHAK"? Never heard of that one.

Why especially HJ? It was me that answered your questioned and almost an hour before HJ responded at all. If you were going to single out one member's response as if it were somehow more valuable than the rest of "all"... well, I just think it ought to be the one that actually answered your question. Thanks a lot f9k9 :roll:

Well, it sat around for a day or two without any input. Brule changed the title and suddenly people were responding but, if it makes you feel better............."thank you everyone, equally"

Sorry I spoiled your fun and btw...........KMA! :lol:

I was just sure that we were going to have to invest in therapy sessions for Reed again.
Looks like he has stood up to "Teh Barch Barrage" this time though :roflmao:
