Title: Acronyms Thread for the Uninitiated
Post by: AJK on October 06, 2011, 11:07:58 AM
Wiki list of abbreviations: http://www.dansdeals.com/wiki/Acronyms

As suggested by another DDF poster, I wanted to start this thread to translate some of the acronyms used here on DDF and elsewhere.

To make this as useful as possible, I'd suggest the tangential comments be limited to a minimum. I'll start with a few:

AFAIK - As far as I know
IIRC - If I recall correctly
CL - Credit line
CB - Credit bureau
PL - Priceline
IANAL - I am not a lawyer
IME - In my experience
AFAICR - As far as I can remember
IMHO - In my humble opinion

and my personal favorite, TWTCSIN - The worse they could say is no.

TU - Transunion
Exp - Experian

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bump_%28Internet%29#Thread
When a member posts in a thread for no reason but to have it go to the top, it is referred to as a bump or bumping. It has been suggested that "bump" is an acronym of "bring up my post";[17] however, this is almost certainly[original research?] a backronym and the usage is entirely consistent with the verb "bump" which means "to knock to a new position".[18]

Why do you need the "A" in "ALOL"?
Because when someone writes "lol" I dont think they are really laughing. The extra "A" validates it

Noun
A Latin American dance of African origin, usually with several people in a single line, one behind the other.

Dan used this term for the conga lines where forum members can get in line to receive a penny from the person before them in line and then they will pass on a penny to the next guy once their account is enabled to send payments.

Thanks for replying. I figured CV knew what it was:

Went to Staples this morning to load up on more $200 Visa giftcards and bought 10 of them cuz I'm heading upstate to Walmart later today. The cashier asked what do I do with $2000 in giftcards so I told her all about Bluebird and paying your bills/rent essentially with a credit card. By the time I was done explaining it & pulling my Ink Bold & BB cards out of my wallet I had all the employees in the store standing around me listening, writing down "dansdeals.com" AWESOME! Now the only problem is, I may never be able to get the giftcards there anymore if the employees are always buying them out! :) Thanks Dan!!

Re:

FWIW I never sold miles but I did do PGGMs and, when I booked dummy flights I used the wrong bday on myself. I have a hunch this is what caused it - booking flights with different birthdays for myself even though they were all cancelled ultimately. Thoughts?
