    I do believe that most of it also applies to games, right? If so, then I got another one. FF: Free Frag

    I do believe that FF stands for Friendly Fire in Games.

    I know that people associate FF as Friendly Fire. But in CS(the only game that I have experienced this) they also have Free Frag. This happens when a person joins a server and joins a team then spawns at the spawn point but is physically not at his keyboard. So he's character just stands at the spawn point doing nothing. Such people are mostly kicked after a few rounds because they can be killed by the opponent without challange, thus the frag is free. This is the first reason that they are kicked. Second, these FFers do nothing to help the team and possibly allow the team to lose especially if he hold the bomb for the terrorists. The FFer also takes up player space in popular servers.(Depriving others of playing there)

    Well I never knew what a "troll" was until I started using the internet, there is an EXTREMELY right wing American site that I go on and I have been called a "troll" a lot for simply holding a different viewpoint to them...

    But I've learned a bit about internet slang so that's good... ...

    To my knowledge, w00t is an expression of extreme happiness (kind of like woo hoo!)

    By IMAO it think you mean LMAO which means Laughing My Ass Off! If indeed you are

    TFH Thread from Hades (a discussion that just won't die and is often irrelevant to the purpose of the forum or group)
    BEG Big evil grin
    CICO Coffee in, coffee out
    FTBOMH From the bottom of my heart
