    .

    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

    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.

    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.

    Oh, i should have found this thread sooner. The IIRC would bite me. I did a google to figure it out. Then forgot it again. Luckly, I remembered how I figured it out before. <not the bright one>

    I have problems with COD cause I read it "Cash/credit on demand", and wonder what it has to do with what we are talking about. <Also very slow>

    OTOH= on the other hand
    aka= also known as

    however

    SUS = ???

    Hope it is OK to post this link here. I sometimes have to keep this site as a tab for quick reference to internet slang. I have found it most helpful. I found it in an article for parents who want to decipher their children's text and other online messages.

    http://www.internetslang.com

    HTH = Hope This Helps

    I don't know if this has been posted or not, but I saw a post that contained this and had to ask what it meant.

    SODDI-Some other dude did it.

    Or in Casey's case, when the Zanny the Nanny theory is no longer working for her...

    SONDI-Some other nanny did it.
