FORUM ACRONYMS

Post by supamonsta » Wed Jan 20, 2010 10:38 am

Hi,

just wanted to make this thread for all noobs, non-english speaking people, so as to help them (and me) understand everything in this forum.

We often use irony AND acronyms, so it's easy to get irate for nothing when we misunderstand what we read...

So here is a list, with your help :


-RTFM : "read the fucking manual" (gold medal)
-BTW : "by the way"
-IMHO : "in my humble opinion"
-GAFM : "get a fucking mac"
-OP : "original poster"
-OT : "out of topic"
-FFS : "for fuck sake"
-TBH : "to be honest"
-ITB : "in the box"
-MFL : "max for live" / "My First Loop"
-Tarnce : "Trance"
-YMMV : "your mileage may vary"
-IOW : "In other words"
-FWIW : "For what it's worth"
-FTW : "For the win"
-P/A : "Public adress" / "Performance Artist"
-IIRC : "if i recall correctly"
-WTF : "What the Fuck?"
-PITA : "Pain In The Arse" (sort of bread)
-AFAIK : "as far as I know"
-AFAIC : "as far as I'm concerned"
-OMGWTFBBQ : "oh my god what the fuck bar-b-que"
-IJTAFAWBANISAMTH : "I joined the Ableton forum a while back and now I spend all my time here"
-PMSL : "Piss Myself Laughing"
-ROFL : "Roll on The Floor Laughing"
-LOL : "Laugh Out Loud" / "Love only Lamas"
-PLUR : "Peace Love Unity Respect"
-USA : "Undesirable Sad Analists"
-UK : "United Knuts"
-FRANCE : "Froggy Rank Anil Nob Cunt Enigmas"
-FTP : "Fuck tha Police"
-DB : "DeciBel" / "DataBase" / "DoucheBag"



cheers

(and no, I've got nothing better to do, because I'm at work :lol: )

I thought PA in the expression "live PA" meant performance artist.

You forgot the most important ones!!!

Tarnce = Trance
Week = a weak argument or a poor comeback or insult.
$15 = The price of all worthwhile quality software.
YMMV = your mileage may vary
IOW = In other words
FWIW - For what it's worth

IIRC most acronyms on here are standard forum ones - nothing unique, IMHO. I think GAFM is a Subfunk construct, right?

Ah, don't forget changing the letter "o" to a zero to add instant b0unceability and therefore instant her0/l0ser status, according to taste.
