Internet abbreviations and jargon

If you're like me, you had to learn what different abbreviations mean on the internet. For instance if you see "LOL" it means Laugh Out Loud. One person has PM'd (Private Messaged)me and asked if I could put together a list of the different internetabbreviations and jargon. So here is the list:

LOL- Laugh out loud
FU- F*** you (by no means to be used here on the CF)
ROTFL- Rolling on the floor laughing
LMAO- Laugh my **** off
WTF?- What the F***?
OMG-Oh my god
ROTFLMGDAO- Over exaggerated combination of ROTFL &LMAO with another adjective thrown in
FTW!- For the win!
FTR,- For the record,
teh-'the' spelled wrong
o/w- over with
brb- be right back
ttyl- talk to you later
IMO- in my opinion
PM- Private Message
IM- Instant message
U-you, but never use it unless you want to make yourself look stupid
k- OK, same deal as u
t/y- thank you
fyi-For your information
j/k- just kidding with you
thx- thanks
n/p-No Problem
?'s- questions
wat?- what, spelled wrong
r u- are you
b/c-because
SNAFU- Situation Normal: All Fouled Up
FUBAR- F***** Up Beyond All Repair/Recognition/Redemption etc.
If you have any to add, post them!

I have a funny story, for months 1Gary would answer some of my post with the term "MM" in it. I tried and tried to figure out what he meant by it, I was thinking "My Man", then a light came on in my head one day and I realized he meant "mudmaniac"
Duh, I felt really stupid about that.
