Here is one to add:

TL;DR = Too Long, Didn't Read

Also, you have "OP = Observation Post", but on most forums like ATS, "OP = Original Post / Poster".

OP == Observation Post

This one is misleading.

In ATS usage, the OP is either the Opening Post (of a thread) or the Opening Poster, depending on context.
So you will read many remarks on the lines of "I agree/disagree with the OP".

Sorry but I believe MSM means Main Stream Media
in other words... NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, all the regular media news


So why do MSM outfits all have three alphabets just like CIA, FBI, NSA, DIA, IOA, etc etc etc

Curious that... oh wait so does ATS

I thought that I read in the 'etiquette" section that using anagrams was frowned upon here at ATS. It does tend to isolate those 'not in the know'. I don't use them unless I am certain my reader(s) will know what I'm saying and often put the spelled out meaning in parenthesis if used.

I'm vexed by the overuse of them and will pass on posts if unintelligible. IMHO, it's just lazy writing.

All the same thanks for the list.
