    Re: That CRAZY lingo!!

    Hey Lori, (and Clay)
    Thanks for the info! I don't use IM or IRC even. I just use e-mail and boa forums is all. I copied the info for reference. Now I can start translating! BFN 8)

    ROFLMAO - Lori's version which ends with my a-- off
    HEY! That one comes from being an IRC user ya know lol. There's also ROFLMFAO..Which I am NOT going to say what that one is exactly...NOT hard to figure out when ya take the above one into account at all hehe.

    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 J/K (just kidding).
    HAHAHAHAHA ..Although MOSt of them in the longer posts should be self explanatory ya know. ;D I mix a lot of medical lingo in at times. That is what throws some people...lol Here's some more for ya..Maybe this can help ya figure it out hehe...

    ie = in other words

    dx = diagnosis
    bbiab = be back in a bit
    cya = see ya
    imho [ a lot of us use this as "in my honest opinion"]
    ol = online
    dunno = I don't know
    ya = you
    atm = at the moment
    sub = substrate
    calci = calcium sand

    BP = ball python / burmese python

    Annie = Anaconda
    GTP = Green tree Python
    Leo = Leopard Gecko
    Tort = tortoise
    Turt = Turtle
    crocodilian = Alligator, Caimen or crocodile
    Ally = Alligator [ usually the american ally]
    Suri = Suriname Boa
    Ig/Iggy = Iguana [ the green Iguana that is ]
    Sallie = salamander [ this is one that i use a lot ol lol]
    retic = reticulated python
    pit [ if not on a vens forum or talking about vens, then it is a pitouophous thats being mentioned hehe]
    vens = venomous snake
    rf = rear fanged
    res = red eared slider


    There's tons more also. That should do ya for now though.

    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.
