  1. Now I've been on the net for some years but I actually found a few on this list that were new to me. ILU, IMU, and KISS are ones I've never seen. I wonder if those are mainly used in text messaging.

    I have to admit when it comes to abbreviations there are so may I just give up. If it's in my own close group of friends we use a few familiar short cuts, but anything out of the ordinary I'm lost. You can always fall back on acronymfinder.com if you aren't sure what the acronym means although you end up finding loads of words used with the same letters.
