A couple of messageboard questions I'm embarrassed I haven't asked yet--
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 06:12 PM by malachibk
(1) What does 'eom' mean?
(2) What does 'n/t' mean?
(3) What does 'imo' mean?
(4) Why, when I take off my pop-up blocker, do some topics have 'flames' on them?

Just like a man, I guess. Don't like to ask for directions.

edit: spelling

1. #1-3
End of message (no text to follow)
No text (same as above)
In my opinion.

You're on your own with #4.

3. Here you go
eom = end of message
n/t = no text

Both of these are used when the entire message is contained in the subject of the post, there's not actual message so readers can skip the message block.

imo = in my opinion; IMHO = in my humble opinion is better manners

flames? You mean the flaming icon beside certain threads? That means the thread got to 30 responses, indicating a heated topic.

4. I have a fifth question...
Why do some messages say 'Ignored'?

8. Must have done that by accident when I'm stoned...
subconsciously wanting to sleep or something (or just being an uncoordinated moron.)
