Damn and I always thought that NFL stood for "No Fun League". Guess I was wrong.

I never thought of "bump" as an acronym. I thought it was referring to the physical action of the post actually bringing the thread up the page, thereby "bumping" it up the page.

I never really knew what “FTW” stood for. After a little research I found out it's commonly used as: "For the Win."

I don't see it much in forum talk that much, but online games and the such I see it alot. Could be helpful but I'm sure I was probably the only one alive who didn't know what it stood for.
