I thought you guys would enjoy this. It is from the BL group that also gathered a list of terms used in the LEGO community. I especially like KABOB :D

The following are acronyms that are used in discussions about LEGO:
AFAIK - As Far As I Know

ASAP - As Soon As Possible
BBL - Be Back Later
BL - BrickLink
BRB - Be Right Back
BTW - By The Way
BURP - Big Ugly Rock Piece
CA - BrickLink Catalog Administrator
CRAPP - Crummy Ramp And Pit Plate
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
FFS - Fat Finger Syndrome (typo)
HTF - Hard To Find
HTH - Hope That Helps
HP - Harry Potter
IA - BrickLink Inventories Administrator
IANAL - I Am Not A Lawyer
IIRC - If I Recall Correctly
IJ - Indiana Jones
IMO - In My Opinion
IMHO - In My Humble Opinion
ISD - Imperial Star Destroyer (Set 10030-1)
ITD - Independent Toy Distributor
KABOB - Kid with A Bunch Of Bricks
KK - Knights Kingdom theme
LMAO - Laugh(ing) My A** Off
LMK - Let Me Know

MISB - Mint In Sealed Box/Bag LEGO set
MISP - Mint In Sealed Packet/Package/Polybag LEGO set
MOC - My Own Creation
NPB - Non Paying Buyer
NRS - Non Responding Seller
NSS - Non Shipping Seller
OCR - Order Cancellation Request
OMG - Oh My Gosh
PaB - Official LEGO "Pick a Brick" service
POOP - Parts which can be made Out of Other Parts
ROFL - Rolling On Floor Laughing
S&H - Shipping and Handling
S@H - Official LEGO "Shop at Home" service
SNOT - Studs Not On Top building technique
STAMP - STicker Across Multiple Parts
SW - Star Wars
TLC - The LEGO Company
TLG - The LEGO Group
TRU - Toys 'R' Us
UCS - Ultimate Collectors Series theme
WTB - Want To Buy

The following are terms that are used in discussions about LEGO:
Clones - Building blocks which are not LEGO brand, such as Mega Bloks
Community - An online place where people hang out and engage in discussions
Dark Age - Period of time during which a person is not interested in LEGO
Juniorization - Describes inclusion of highly specialized parts in LEGO sets instead of several already existing elements which can be assembled into the same configuration. The idea is to make it easier for younger children to build the sets but it is criticized by AFOLs since it is difficult to use these parts when building alternate models and MOCs.
Stud - Small round peg which appears on top of most LEGO parts and is used to connect to other LEGO parts.

Mod edit: I know you were copy+pasting but please don't swear, thanks. :)

I have a question. What does FTW mean? I've seen a lot of MOCers and commentors use it but never found out what it means. If one you can post it that would help me alot. Thanks.

I googled it and got:
Urban Dictionary wrote:
FTW is comonly used as an acronym for "For The Win

It means something else, but I'd rather not say. . .

Yeah, but that meaning is less common, so @everyone, don't be insulted is someone says it to you. ;)

BTW, don't forget IIRC and NPU (If I Remember Correctly and Nice Parts Use).
