Hi Thomas, Yes, Internet short hand has been around for awhile, but I believe that cell phone texting has added a whole new level to text short hand and it has bled over to Email.
BTW AT&T Crystal pronounces allot of the Internet short hand acronyms such as LOL BTW IMHO etc. That is one reason that She reads my Email. And I have found over 250 acronyms that one or more of the twenty two sapi5 voices that I have know and pronounce. Some times they pronounce different things for the same acronym. <grin> BFN Jim BTW, FWIW, IMHO, yes. OTOH, AAMOF, maybe not. j...@kitchensinc.net http://www.kitchensinc.net (440) 286-6920 Chardon Ohio USA --- Gamers mailing list __ Gamers@audyssey.org If you want to leave the list, send E-mail to gamers-unsubscr...@audyssey.org.
