ISDN* — Colloquial Acronyms Decoded

Wysiwyg

Whenever I come across one of those abbreviations that are internet shorthand for something or other I just skip over them because I don't use them nor have I a clue as to what they mean.

Oh, sure, I know FYI means "for your information" and IMHO means "in my humble opinion"; I also know LOL means "laughing out loud" and WYSIWYG is "what you see is what you get" but those are the only four that rang a bell out of a list of approximately 115 such acronyms compiled on this useful site.

I'm better at decoding emoticons: I usually understand the message they send.

Maybe I'm more visual than verbal — ya think?

ISDN* = "it still does nothing."

That site misses out one or two of my favourites, e.g. SWMBO - "She Who Must Be Obeyed", also referred to on one of the newsgroups I read as FC - "Financial Controller" due to their control over gadget budgets :)
