    Does this mean I should update the glossary again? LOL.
    ​Life is what you make of it. Mine is profound-sounding statements that mean a lot less when you parse them out.

    IMHO also means "In My Humble Opinion"

    Of course there are many variations for a majority of these acronyms. You just need to keep in mind which ones mean what according to the forum you are on.

    In effort to KISS (Keep is Short and Simple, Keep is Short and Sweet, or Keep it Short Stupid!) I think the general idea has been reached.

    We could continue to add until IMHO the thread becomes FUBAR or FUTATABAR, BOC YMMV!
