funny story... i have a relitive who married into my wives fam who i am not to fond of as it is. anyways they wrote something on a chat and i wrote FTFY* and i fixed it up...then everyone started harrassing me whats ftfy  i then wrote fixed that for you. then i wrote GIYF, LMGTFY...issue is it doesnt come up as only fixed that for you....  ;D ;D

;D

I remember, when I was new here (yes, believe it or not, I once was :P), I saw FTFY being used an awful lot... and couldn't figure out why such seemingly good friends were constantly cursing each other out in frustration. ::)

Too embarrassed to ask in the Conga board  :-[

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.
