Diner Frequently Used Acronyms
« on: December 10, 2013, 02:08:18 PM »
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.

EROEI- Energy Return on Energy Invested (sometimes called EROI, Energy returned on Investment)

htf or HTF - How the fk
IMO- In My Opinion
LMFAO - Laugh my fking ass off

MSM- Main Stream Media, or the wholly corporate-owned media, mouthpieces of status quo

TPTB- The Powers That Be, the entrenched status quo of banks, government and cronies

Diner Frequently Used Acronyms Updated

We do have a Glossary of Frequently Used Diner Acronyms.

Surly's original list heads up this thread.  I am going to copy/paste it and add a few more.  In the future, if I use a new acronym, I will add it to the list also, and then provide a Link below my signature of RE to the latest Acronym List.

Other Diners who use acronyms may also add to the list.  I did not add any of the New Diners acronyms for their user ID.  Diners will need to add their own as I am sure to forget somebody.
