I am assuming that your darling dd is not your designated driver. Is there a list of this lexicon?

quick reply. thanks.

I have been online for, has it really been 14 years!!!

WOW, Most of the 1337 speak and emoticons I get. But most of my experience has been on automotive and gaming web sites. It seems that the girls use more of the Smilies and abbreviations than the guys. This is the first forum that I have registered on that is not dominated by a bunch of XY chromosomes.

Wow! These acronyms are really helpful. And the smileys are really cool. I could use them a lot whenever at work or just with a nice and cool email. Thanks! ;)
