    Just to be helpful here are others you might have wondered about (especially new net users)

    LOL - Laughing Out Loud
    ROFL - Rolling on Floor Laughing
    LMAO see above. can be changed to lmfao... u can guess what the f stands for.
    WTF - what the *beep*
    FFS - for f...":dubbed: goodness" sake
    PMSL - pissed myself laughing
    BTW - by the way
    TTYL - talk to you later
    G2G - got to go

    those are the main colloquialism I've seen used. wasnt that helpful ?*cough-reputation-cough"!

    Add to that list;

    IMHO:
    In my humble (honest) opinion.

    Seems people can not tell between LMAO and IMHO, and all of a sudden you get IMAO which I've never seen before !

    i think when u saw lmao...it probably looked like imao...cuz after about 10 minutes of wasting my time..i relized theres no possible phrase to fit in that makes sense

    CR

    I've seen IIRC does anyone know what this means?

    I think it's something to do with re-collection - i've got no idea.

    Did anyone watch "Rule the School" on cbbc? the children teach the teachers stubjects on their level eg text messaging, rapping, dancing. In the texting lesson, they were going through all these abbreviations!
    here are some more for you:
    IMO - In My Opinion.
    PMJI - Pardon Me for Jumping In
    A/S/L - Age/Sex/Location
    Y2K - Year 2000
    AFAIK - As far as I Know
    FWIW For What It's Worth
    IYKWIM If You Know What I Mean

    theres a really good link with possibly every existing abbreviation!

    If You Know What I Mean And I Think You Do perhaps? I dunno, just a guess.

    There's also the LMFAO abbreviation, but I don't really want to tell you what the 'F' adjective stands for.

    IMAO = In My Almighty Opinion?

    If It Was Lamo Is Would Be : Laugh My Ass Off

    Haha, when I first learned what lmao meant, I also thought, at first glance that it was written with letters imao, as in many fonts the capital i looks like an l.

    IMAO - In My Arrogant Opinion

    Another common abbreviation;

    TWIFAICBATLIIA

    This world is f***** and I can't be arsed to live in it anymore.
