    Hello everyone I’m new hear and over the past few months there have been specific cases that have brought me to this awesome forum but never thought to sign up. I finally did ... there is such a plethora of knowledge and information here. I’m wondering if anyone could help me with deciphering some acronyms that seem to be repeatedly mentioned in a number of posts. Is there a cheat sheet somewhere? I have been searching the entire site (I could totally be looking for it in the wrong spots - I’m still getting acclimated with the site).

    These seem to be the three acronyms I’m coming across and honestly cannot figure out what they count be:

    - LE
    - MSM
    - MOO
    - IMO


    I can’t seem to find the rest but any others you think maybe be helpful please feel free to post, thank you. Happy Holidays ALL

    Welcome!

    I know there is a thread just for this. I believe it is on the first page of each case. If I’m wrong, could someone please correct me?

    in the meantime:

    LE Law Enforcement
    MSM Main Stream Media
    MOO My Opinion Only
    IMO IN my opinion

    HTH Hope that helps

    THIS IS PERFECT!! Thank you so so much!! I’ll double check the threads in this group again but honestly these were the ones I kept getting stuck on. Which now I feel so silly that I couldn’t figure those out myself lol.

    Acronyms and abbreviations for names or a group of people can be hard to keep track of. There are ones I probably just ignore or did ignore until I finally googled or someone spelled out the phrase and I was like, "Oh that's what that mean,". at least you asked. Welcome to websleuths!
