Diner Frequently Used Acronyms
« on: December 10, 2013, 09:06:20 AM »
Thanks to Diner Step Back, here is a list of Frequently Used Acronyms often in play here in the Diner Forum.
This is a form of shorthand to refer to phrases that frequently occur in the discussion of the various aspects of Doom.

This is only a start and is not meant to be encyclopedic; it's meant to be a living doc. I urge any admin or mod to add, update and refine this list.

BAU- Business as Usual
DD- Doomstead Diner
CFS- Common Fking Sense
EROEI- Energy Return on Energy Invested (sometimes called EROI, Energy returned on Investment)

FWIW- For What It's Worth
HTH - Hope That Helps
htf or HTF - How the fk
IMO- In My Opinion
LMFAO - Laugh my fking ass off
LOL- Laugh Out Loud
J6P - Joe six-pack
MSM- Main Stream Media, or the wholly corporate-owned media, mouthpieces of status quo
SUN- Sustaining Universal Needs project
TBTF- Too Big To Fail (as in banks)
TEOTWATKI- The End Of The World As We Know It
TPTB- The Powers That Be, the entrenched status quo of banks, government and cronies
TSHTF- The Shit Hits the Fan, generally preceded by "when"
wtf or WTF - What the fk? or Where the fk or Who the fk

LIB-CYAN-A

Love It But Can You Add [an HTML] Name Anchor to each official acronym
so that,
by copying the HTML hyperlink to this page
and then appending #ACRO
to that acronym we are automatically taken to the Surly-approved expansion of that acronym ?
