    I compiled, quite quick and dirty, a list of abbreviations and acronymes used at the forums.

    RHP - Red Hot Pawn
    IE - Internet Explorer
    FF - FireFox
    OTB - Over The Board
    CC - Correspondence Chess
    gg - Good Game
    gl - Good Luck
    lol - Laughing Out Loud
    btw - By the Way
    imo - In My Opinion
    imho - In My Humble Opinion

    Care to include more abbreviations?

    It's Acronym

    no E

    There're no true abbreviations in your list, they are all acronyms. Int Ex (for Internet Explorer) would be an abbreviation.

    The one Acronym missing, that all need to know is:

    PFC

    Word.

    PFC stands for 1 mole of Phosporus, 1 mole of Flouride and 1 mole of Carbon.

    In chemistry, it is known as Phosflourcarbonide. It's a very dangerous compound. Avoid contact with eyes.
