May i suggest someone looks at updating it. I've been bored and delving into topics i wouldn't normally dip into, and in some of them i am completely lost.

Has it been a while since it was refreshed?

Hi there

Could you post some of the acronyms that are perplexing you?

Then we'll take a look and see what we can do smile

BOAK what the hell is that??

boak just means retch doesn't it?

Boak is just boak isn't it, like barf or puke but more Mumsnet.

I think some help with the TTC acronyms would be a good idea (and also what some of those words actually mean, and what stuff is wink)

LMAO - que?

The double meaning ones confuse me

people use DF as dear fiance or dear friend or dear father

BF as breastfeeding or best friend

I often have to re-read posts as I've misunderstood the acronyms

oh right. Thanks, is that what you do when ROFLing excessively, owing to the friction?

SaintGeorge Thu 18-Sep-08 17:23:58

Dunno, but it can get mighty messy if you PYSL, LYAO and then ROFL.

Not to be recommended wink
