Cool Forum talk

So being on some forums you notice how people are typing, you know little abrev. here and there lol, so i thought i would start a thread that focused simply on the slang of modern day forum/chat rooms, If you have some weird abrev. for some word post it, lol, kind of a funny way of learning.......
