    BB Vernacular - Newbie's Quick Start Guide to ChessChat

    Article 42: A document that essentially says this forum is a community. Its not just about the chess. All welcome. Most tolerated.
    BB: Bulletin Board
    BBL: Be Back Later
    BEMU: Belated Excited Misinformed Utterance.
    Bot: Moderator/ Admin. Originally a derogatory term likening behavioural traits similar to a robot. Since reclaimed as a term of endearment.
    BRB: Be Right Back
    Chess: A very difficult game that is beyond most BB users.
    Coffee Lounge [CL]: Curious reference with no known origins. Occasionally slips into the vernacular. Often avoided once uttered. Crazy speak which sometimes results in the utterer disappearing.
    Dribble: A collection of words that makes no sense. Often, the author is unaware.
    FOFW: Please leave.
    Girls: 'Morning Girls, 'Evening Girls. A pleasant way to say hello to the largely male populace of the BB. Try it in the Shoutbox, one day.
    HADBBA: Howard Andrew Duggan Bulletin Board Awards.
    HCD: Howie Cyber Dollar. Often paid for quality posts and witicisms.
    IMO: In My Opinion. IMHO: In My Humble Opinion.
    Off fucoffee: Coffee Break
    Lefty Plonker: A derogatory, or term of endearment depending on the recipient. Refers to the author's opinion of one's political leanings.
    Line of text: An unknown identity.
    Lurker: A registered user who prefers to look but not post. Not that there's anything wrong with that!
    Mollusc: 1. Lowest life form on BB 2. Kevin's little friends.
    NTTAWWT: Not that there's anything wrong with that. Regularly used to confirm that one's employment in making holes in doughnuts is quite acceptable, some might say admirable [except Axiom].
    Obfuscating Dribble: Dribble that is generally intended to cloud an issue that is otherwise lost to the author via rationale debate.
    Poll: A user generated mechanism intended to measure support for a proposition. Prone to failure 90% of the time through a) disinterest, or b) voters voting in self interest.
    Rubber Bullet: A spamming mechanism created by Antichrist.
    Sausage Time: Cigarette Break
    s.f.: split from. A thread is split from its original when in the opinion of the Squad, it has either drifted to far, or is worthy of separate attention.
    SWAMBO: She Who Always Must Be Obeyed. Often permission required from SWAMBO to play in tournaments.
    The [Mod] Squad: Collective noun for admins/ moderators coined by Howard Duggan.
    Troll [v.]: The intent of provoking or inflaming.
    WTF?: That defies belief.
    Yellow Card: Unofficial Infringement.

    Non permitted words:
    Paradigm
    Metric

    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    Non permitted words UPDATE:

    Paradigm - wankish
    Metric - we did just fine before its widespread use
    Axiomatic - on its merits
    Bourgeois [ie] - dangerous dribble in firegoat7's hands

    And of course the immortal AMABR, and its close cousin AMABIPR.

    A Google search revealed that "Alert, Mop and Bucket Required" is an original Gletsosism found nowhere on the internet but chesschat.

    I wonder if it will spread?

    Ian, you appear to have missed the translation of a couple of 'F's. I can't for the life of me work out what they could be.

    I know what FQ means but does FC refer to Canetoads or Cockroaches?

    Thorough searches of reference books and other materials failed to elucidate on these.

    I guess it must be a misprint
