Hey,

I'm a smart guy. But some of the acronyms used on this forum baffle me. I should give a list but I don't have the time to compile it.

Sincerely,

Joe

Though sometimes not found, I visit http://www.acronymfinder.com esp. on forums...seems everyone uses acronyms and if you are new you may not identify them right off...even if you use the terms on a daily basis...

That said, what in particular are you looking for?

How about "STFU Noob!"

Just kidding with ya. Like the others have stated, ask and ye shall receive. But you need to be a little more specific.
