    LMAO = Laugh(ing) My A** off

    I am assuming that LMOA is a variation of that.

    IMO = In My Opinion

    So now does ROFLMAO make sense? Just add "rolling on floor" to the above. :D
  9. ROFL = Rolling on the floor laughing, often combined with MAO for ROFLMAO or rolling on the floor laughing my a$$ off. ;)

    Delta, the ones you have to worry about are FUBAR and SNAFU, at least if you're on a mission. :D

    That should be easy.

    Now, here's some more, that not everyone might be aware of:

    WTG

    WTF?

    G2G (sometimes GTG)

    PWN

    LOL

    OMG! (sometimes ZOMG!!)

    FTW (sometimes 4TW)

    CUL8R

    LFG

    Some of these are gamer-specific, as in they are mostly typed by those involved in online games.
