    Hey Clay,
    The Lingo lesson is nice...but since this is a boa forum, maybe you could add 'boa lingo' for newbies as well :. As an example, BRB also stands for 'Brazilian Rainbow Boa'.
    Just a thought.

      I think one of the best ways to test your knowledge of 'forum lingo' is to read one of Lori's longer posts, and then try to translate it :. If you can completely understand it, then your a forum pro ;D J/K (just kidding).
