    Cool Websleuths Lingo

    .

    Now and then we have to remember with as many new members we have that our every day lingo becomes like a maze to them. Since people are lost on these and asking...here you go! Seasoned posters can feel free to add their own since I will probably forget half of them.

    LE= Law Enforcement
    POI= Person Of Interest
    COD= Cause Of Death
    TOD= Time OF Death
    ITA= I Totally Agree
    POS= Piece of ***** (Reserved for a known perp, suspect, or POI)
    IIRC= If I Recall Correctly
    FWIW= For What Its Worth
    COB= POS The story behind this is on the Jessie Davis case, someone meant to type COP in reference to Bobby Cutts, Jr. and it came out COB. We called him that for the rest of the case and now it had become synonymous with POS.
    OT= Off Topic
    WTH= What The Hell? (Usually reserved for frustration in understanding what is taking place within a certain situation...such as in this case. I see it a lot when discussing Casey Anthony.)
    GMAB= Give Me A Break
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
    THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    A quote spray painted on the wall by search
    and rescue workers, Team 5, at the OKC Bombing site 4-19-1995.



    What I post are my opinions only.

    GP- grandparents
    No female, no matter how drunk, drugged, or provocatively dressed they may be, deserves to be ogled, harrassed, raped, or murdered. So stop the ignorant insinuations.

    Isn't that the weirdest looking creature you've ever seen? I listened to the news today and they are trying to say it's a raccoon. I call BS. I've seen many raccoons in my life and that thing is NO KIN!

    It looks like a Koala bear mixed with a dog.


    BS=This isn't Bull Snot.
    PITA=Pain In The Arse.
    Bitter are the tears of a child: Sweeten them.
    Deep are the thoughts of a child: Quiet them.
    Sharp is the grief of a child: Take it from him.
    Soft is the heart of a child: Do not harden it.

    Then a few folks joked that MP would be the perfect name for Casey. In a way, I hope it doesn't take off, because I can forsee 300 people posting: 'Wait a sec! Who's MP??' And then another 300 responses.

    Anyway, I thought I'd crosspost it to the lingo thread.

    MP=Miss Pinnochio=Casey. LOL (Laugh Out Loud)!

    BTW, one common lingo term I have never quite figured out is ROFL, sometimes with more letters. I know it means to laugh really hard, but what do the letters stand for? Thanks!
    ROFL=rolling on floor laughing, ROFLMAO-rolling on floor laughing my arse off.

    Can someone explain to me what "bump" means? Like "I am bumping this post".

    bumping means to move it back to the top so people can see it.

    I've been around for awhile and I still come across some acronym's that throw me. Last year I finally learned that:

    KWIM?=Know what I mean?

    AFAIC=As far as I'm concerned. (this one always reminds me of the duck/insurance commercial)

    Shadowraith has some that I keep forgetting to ask her about. I can't remember off hand what they are. So you can be around here forever and still be learning. lol.
