Subject: RE: Handy Abbreviations
It's great fun to talk about these acronyms in this thread, but I hope they don't get used too much in the rest of the forum. I think they tend to exclude those of us who don't understand them or don't think quick enough to figure them out.
Personally, I don't even like the BS or NOI labels that have been bandied about lately - it seems the writers who use these labels have assumed permission to be disgusting or insulting. If you have the masterful humor of a Catspaw or an Art Thieme, you can say just about anything gracefully. The rest of us mere mortals have to be a little more careful - and the BS and NOI labels don't really protect us.
