    Really? I thought it was shorthand for "I don't have any facts to back up
    my opinions so I'll resort to personal insults." HTH!

    Okay. This is starting to drive me nuts. Somebody please tell me what "HTH"
    means. I've been reading newsgroups for quite a while so I don't consider
    myself a ng newbie, but I can't figure out that particular TLA.

    It's one of the many ridiculous abbreviations particularly our
    American friends appear to like using a lot. You'll note that genuine
    Brits rarely use these. The one I always reserve for a specially loud
    guffaw is the ROFLMAO one. That must have been written in these ngs
    about ten million times in the past few months, and with every
    repetition it is devalued -- by now into just a mockery of its former
    self.

    Yeah, the more postings you do, the more I see followups with ROTFLMAO.

    Re: .NOT vs .NET

    Yet another example of a brit overcompensating for nationalistic inferiority
    by riduling the way Americans use the language. I see this all the time.

    Seriously though, I don't mind the abbreviations too much--especially the
    better-known ones. I guess I just didn't catch on to that one because I
    always type out "hope that helps".

    What *really* pisses me off is that L33T crap. I think we're going to see a
    whole lot more of that now that those text-messaging phones are becoming so
    popular.

    "(Elite. It's a) computer dialect termed "l33t" (a derivation of elite)? It
    is used generally by "hacking" or "gaming" groups on IRC, forums, message
    boards, etc., and involves a variable coding of the language. Character
    substitution is based on visual similarity, phonetic similarity, synonyms,

    Well, I guess that means I'm not one of the L33T.

    *** constitutes a "genuine Brit"???

    Or if that's too hard, what exactly would make one not a "genuine Brit"???
