rhombot is awesome!

yay linguists.

Oxford English Dictionary. The most authoritative dicitionary in the English language and a way snooty English majors can reference something and sound cool (nothing against you hooray, just a general statement from my experience with the text). It is online as well, as I pointed out, the reference was good, but not entirely compelte.

Yeah, it was sloppy to choose the highlighted definition instead of giving them all. I've never really nitpicked online before, but this issue just seems pretty straightforward to me. Acronyms are super cool, we don't have enough of them. Abbreviations are a dime a dozen, conflating the two takes away one of the few cool things about our native tongue.

that post makes you awesome in my book, youmust have a strong english background as well

For instance, this post is borderline GAK.
Pish, J only wants to waste YOUR time.  Get wise.

I am always borderline or blatant GAK.  That is why it is amazing that anyone actually appreciates my compliments.  I do always mean them, though.

Hey!  I found your baff: http://www.xoxohth.com/wiki/index.php/BAFF

Aww.  I feel a bit sorry for the poor guy. :(

See, kids, it wasn't so hard, now was it? ;)

There are some newer ones that aren't on there, notablly (pp), GTQ, GAK....

You're getting there!  Any btw, legapp, the xoxo wiki is actually a fun resource....pretty hilarious.

I don't think we'll see GAK defined on the xo acronym board anytime soon.  From what I've seen AK is anathema there, let alone GAK.  They're too prestigious for that.

George used that word on Seinfeld once, and Jerry went, "How long have you been waiting to pull that one out?"
