WSSBA - the William Shatner School of Baaaaaaad Acting!

Located just outside beautiful downtown Orillia, Ontario, Canada, the WSSBA campus has facilities and courses totally devoted to the life and works of William Shatner, Canada's foremost gift to the world. 50 different courses are offered at the WSSBA from The Dramatic Pause 101 to Advanced Shatnerization 404. Upon entering the campus, one's attention is immediately drawn to the giant statue of a Tribble on the Shatner Oval, the immense Rotunda (the fattest building in the world), and the towering Shatner-In-A-Speedo marble statue that looms over the campus, gazing boldly down from Kirk Hill, rather like a latter day Zeus contemplating the Earthly domain over which he rules.

JTRCFCB - the James Taylor Rehab Centre For Catatonic Blandness

Ask Spaw about that one.

Some people seem to be compulsive about saying, "LOL." You'll sometimes see it three times in a post, especially posts from younger people. It conveys a feeling of nervousness and social discomfort, I think.

For a long time, I often saw messages at Mudcat that said thing like, "That song was written by Richard Thompson, IIRC," and I figured IIRC must be one of those honorific abbreviations that some Brits put after their names, like OBE.

(By the way, I just looked up Richard Thompson, and I found out he really is "Richard Thompson, OBE.")

Ya know where John says 'one may use complete sentences'? He doesn't really mean that. He means like lots more than one can use complete sentences, because if only one did, then like we'd be screwed, huh? And his thing about spelling. That's ecellent. And about the complete sentanses. IMHAHO. Actually I'm not. But ya know . . . .

But esp. for the newcomers, please note that mudcat is different than a lot of other sites where information(?) is exchanged.

At mudcat (and almost exclusively at mudcat) it is possible, and recommended, that one may use complete sentences, spell words out so meanings are clear, and it is permissible to type with your

     FINGERS.

You are not limited to using your two (or more) thumbs - although what some us of produce might look like it.

The freedom to have, and at least to attempt to express, IDEAS, THOUGHTS, and INFORMED OPINIONS is an exclusive and proprietary property of mudcat, unknown at most other websites1.

There is some variation in usage among our group, but for the most part acronyms, abbreviations, and codes are not necessary here, and for the most part we are not forced to rely on them to express ourselves. They seldom appear where it's NECESSARY to know what they mean, although mostly, when used, they're as used elsewhere on the web.

Jeez, how could I NOT know about "Read The Manual" or the alternatative "Read The F. Manual" ~ I work as a tech writer, for crying our loud, and produce the very manuals that our customers so stubbornly refuse to open!

At least, in this case, I was right about what the "F" stood for...

I always thought the "H" in "IMHO" meant "humble" rather than "honest."

Not that it makes any difference...

I'll have to look up "RTFM"; I usually have a strong suspicion about what an "F" stands for, but that isn't ALWAYS correct. For example, the "F" in "ROTFL" stands for the very innocent word "floor" ("rolling on the floor laughing").

WOBH is a new one on me ~ I've been mostly absent from Mudcat since August 29, 2005 ~ and I'm glad that MMario saw fit to provide an immediate translation. (Even with the "answer" completely spelled out, it took be a minute to catch on.)

I believe "blue clicky thing" originated in the befuddled brain of Rick Fielding.
