Nah, don't sweat it. Thats the nice thing about our site. If you posted this on PBN there would be 3 pages of people flaming you already. We were all new once. I remember when I first came to the site seeing all the abbreviations and stuff thinking "Man, these guys type in code." Then I made a friend and would constantly ask him what certain abbrevations meant, and he told me. I think there is a dictionary some where of common internet/chat abbrevations, not sure where though.

IMO, OMGZ LIKE GTFO! Hahaha, just kidding. Yeah when I was new to the whole internet thread scene it was pretty hard to get used to. Lots of confusing terms and what not... Just ask if you have any questions though. We are all here to help.

when I first started using forums I always wondered if people actually used the pm feature, and now I find myself using it just about every day

if you look around youll see alot more abbreviations-- such as

up, free up, or ttt: its seen in the B/S/T section, basically lets everyone know that their gun is still for sale or trade

Watch the magic words you say when you do that. I recall someone turning his friend into a cumquat after doing that -

Watch your language! :p

Welcome aboard, and don't worry about not knowing the lingo - try being in your mid to upper 30's (when I signed up) and having to learn all this stuff!
