What the H-E- Double Hockey Sticks is....
I've been around computers a longgg time. I had a computer when a 300 bd acoustical modem was the be-all. I've been on-line a longgg time. Online since before there was a real "internet" to be online, well, on. Heck, way back when I even ran a fairly popular BBS.
In all that time I have never EVER seen a more abbreviation and acronym obsessed group such as here! WHAT the heck does 90% of this stuff mean?
I've seen haabs, kaqs, mwuq, baiacs, seeps, and my personal favorite, pp. Plus a cubic azz-load more. You guys definitely do NOT make it easy on the newcomers to figure out what the heck you're talking about!
Somewhere I ran across a member that had a list of some sort in their sig but silly me I forgot to mark it. The member was some kind of animally name. Rabid squirrel or angry chipmunk or raging raccoon, or something like that. No offense to you member if you are who I'm referencing!
Give us new guys a break will ya? Post a nice big fact sticky sign somewhere that reads DEFINITIONS OF GOBBLE-DY GOOK HERE!
Inquiring but overloaded smokey minds want to know.
The goobledygook definition thread would get completely out of hand in no time and be impossible to wade through. Can we add a tab to the comparison spreadsheet instead?
Actually... I just realized we need a wiki.
A list of acronyms can be found here.
A glossary of various hammocking terms is here.
It can be confusing at times even for those of us who have been around for a while.
The glossary will help, but I doubt it will answer all of your questions. In fact, I only recognized MWUQ and KAQ. I believe the member you alluded to was angryaparrow.
acronyms and abbreviations
Welcome to the insanity. You'll soon be speaking the language like a native.

All I got was a wedgie.
and I believe PP stands for a Speers PeaPod
and there is no such thing as an acoustical modem. I did have an asynchronous one, a long long time ago....
