Abbreviation guide for non-anglophone readers
I plan to make a private list of abbreviations that appear in this forum for my Japanese friends.
(There are quite many readers of GS forum in my country, though few are visible on the board.)
Could someone kindly correct the wrong and add the missings to the following?
b/c = because
BTW = by the way
ETA = edited to add
IIRC = if I recall/remember correctly
ITA = I totally agree
IMHO = in my honest/humble opinion
IMO = in my opinion
LOL = laughing out loud
OMG = Oh my God
OTOH = on the other hand
TBA = to be announced
TBD = to be determined
Thank you so much, in advance.
I'm going to move this over to le cafe so that you get more help
and I'll add - AFAIK = As Far As I Know
Oh thank you.

Yesterday I saw BOT which I couldn't figure out at all, that's the second time happening. (The first was LOL, LOL.)
I just did a search and BOT is supposed to be "back on topic". Hope that helps!
I can't think of any others used frequently in general here although there are PLENTY more abbreviations used all over the net!
