Thread: Why do the regulars insist on using...

  1. #1

    Why do the regulars insist on using...

    So many abbreviations? And why do the new members follow them like sheep?

    Is it the shame?

    It must be.

    Why else would people use lingo foreign to everyone else?

    abbreviations..

    Every circle has their lingo..Its like learning a new sort of language and personally I prefer this..
    What are you talking about shame?

    Its just short abbreviations that are convenient when communicating and it sure saves a lot of typing ..

    Once you become familiar with it you can almost have a conversation just using these abbreviations....

    I find this pretty cool..

    Cool

    There are no options. Get with the lingo...we are not going to redefine a whole lexicon for you...you can find a dictionary for all these terms on this site anyway. please quit your griping.
    this thread should be deleted...

    Trust me, I'm not expecting a change.

    I'm just making an observation. And judging from the responses so far, an accurate one.

    Funny guy!
    So, if you see a medical doctor, you will insist he doesn`t use words you can`t understand while he`s talking to his collegues and you`re around? If the doc is talking to you, fine, you can ask him to talk in a way you understand but, when he`s talking to somebody else, if you can`t understand and don`t want to learn the terms they`re using, then don`t listen and don`t complain! If you don`t think it`s worth the effort to learn the language, it`s not worth your time to stick around either. Same goes here: we use abbreviation to make things simpler. Everybody know or can easily find what a TC is. It`s far easier to write the abbreviation than it is to whrite the entire thing. There`s nothing about shame there.

    The way I see it, YOU are ashamed of being here and, by refusing to accept the lingo, you try to distance yourself from your shame.

    I'm editing to include this reply from "upnsmoke" He removed it but, without it, my reply is useless.

    Below is my reply to the post pasted above:

    And I can go almost forever with this!

    For computers:
    • B.I.O.S.
      S.Q.L.
      D.O.S.
      R.A.M.
      D.V.D.
      E.E.P.R.O.M.
      R.O.M.
      P.O.S.T.
      C.D.
      C.D. R./W.

    And it keep going!

    Your last reply is a good indication of somebody who got surprised with his pants down and no longer have any valid argument. When somebody start argumenting on the form of the discussion rather than on the fundamental question, it only mean one thing: BUSTED!

    I'll stop here.

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    Surf this board for a week or so and all those abbreviations will make common sense to you. There is also a thread with all the meanings of these abbreviations. See a couple of escorts and write some reviews and you will see that using abbreviations is easier.

    Abbreviations are used everywhere in common life. The reason we are using it here is the same as using abbreviations elsewhere, it is to save time since most of us knows what those abbreviations means.

    I used to think that the use of abbreviations on MERB was designed first and foremost for security and discretion purposes. But that was only before i realized that you can easily find what the abbreviations stand for just by clicking on a link .
