    Question Abreviations

    Sorry to be a complete moron, but I have the following questions.

    What's IIRC?
    What's IMHO?
    What's a spoiler?!

    Excuse me, me complete idiot....
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country.

    IIRC = If I Remember Correctly
    IMHO = In My Humble Opinion
    Spoiler = In movies & books, giving away the ending to someone who hasn't seem the movie or read the book, yet.
    Be well. Do good. Keep in touch.

    Also:

    AFAIK = As far as I know

    A spoiler in reference to games is information that could detract from experiencing the game the first time through--revealing secrets, explaining how to solve a problem, telling where the goodies are, etc.

    Don't feel bad ... I was baffled by these abbreviations too at first.

    I didn't get IIRC until I had someone explain it on the chat java. It may have been BKS that told me, but I am not sure.

    Also: ROFL= Rolling on floor laughing (IIRC)
