I think we have pretty much got them all. I had to go deep into some threads just to find any today.

Also, I think we may need a small summary of what some of these acronyms above are.

VAT (VATIN) = Value Added Tax Identification Number
CVV = Card Verification Value
VV = Vanilla Visa
YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary
TMI = To Much Information
CL = Craigslist



.

I've noticed a few users sign off a post with TIA.

I though we had a lot of members called Tia until I realised it maybe meant 'thankyou in advance'

Aspkin, I really have a hard time remembering all these acronyms, can you make your website recognize these acronyms so that when we hover over these keywords, a bubble would pop up to see full acronym meanings?

I'm sure he has time for a couple of days worth of coding so you don't have to be bothered having to come back to this page.

Maybe put this on your bookmarks bar?
