What the feck is the matter with all these people that use abbreviations all the time. Are their lives so hectic that they don't have time to type proper words into mudcat threads ?

It's very annoying to me because I don't understand about 90% of them.
Slow down, take it easy, relax FFS.

Hi eric raude - DON'T PANIC!
Here is a fine dictionary. Checked it with LOL and BG, did work!
They have a category Internet --> Chat, too, where you can enhance your knowledge.
Nevertheless you are utterly right. Not everything considered funny by the writer may be accepted as polite by the reader. But - since we are mostly fellow musicians, suffer and endure. It doesn't hurt so much.

"Don't be lazy git -- look them up!"

Someone was asking a question Amos not asking for insults, you seem to have to much time on your hands.

a further proof for the qualities of the acronym and abbreviation dictionary I mentioned above:

RTFM, bowdlerized:
Read The F****** Manual            Internet->Chat
Read The First Message            Internet->Chat
Read The Friendly Manual          Miscellaneous->Funnies
Read The Fabulous Manual            Business->General
Read The Furnished Manuals            Business->General
Read The Fine Manual            Business->International Business
Read The Freaking Manual            Governmental->Military
Read The Flippin Manual            Computing->SMS
Read The Fu*ing Manual            Computing->SMS

unfiltered: additional
Read The Fuckin Manuals            Miscellaneous->Adults
Read The Fucking Manual            Miscellaneous->Adults

so what, gnome?

Why should I have to look them up when English works so well? These silly abbreviations do nothing more than make the message ambiguous.

I must be reading the wrong threads - I haven't noticed any abbreviations! Other than the ROTFLMAO variety, are there new ones coming into vogue that I might need interpreted?

I see what you mean. If LOL means Laughing Out Loud, would the right abbreviation to use in the opposite situation be LTM (laughing to myself) or LS (laughing silently) or even QC (quietly chuckling.)

And if ROTFLMAO means rolling on the floor laughing my ass off, can we then be expected to parse out ROTFHMHOCGTH (which incidently means, rolling on the floor hit my head on coffeetable gone to hospital) or even ROTFLSHIWM (which means rolling on the floor laughed so hard I wet myself.)

Every in-group tends to develop its own language (jargon, if you like) in order to develop group feeling. This is nothing new. Nothing very humorous, either, I'll grant you. In fact, my opinion is that the less sense of humor or originality a writer possesses, the more he(she) is likely to rely on the likes of LOL, ROFLetc, etc., etc., ad nauseam.

They were developed in the early days of the web when things were painfully slow. They served a purpose. Now they're part of the heritage. Live with it. They won't go away soon.
