What does OE stand for?

Is there an index that shows what commonly used abbreviations mean?

What is the purpose of a sway bar? I do not see why it would be needed..Thanks in advance

I have figured out that LOL probably means Laugh Out Loud...is that correct?

MBENZ,
That is so funny. Yes it mean's LOL. I remember when I first started using the internet some 5 years ago, I thought LOL meant exactly as it sounds out loud, LOL, and just thought it was some kind of term like "that was funny" or something. I used to also think BRB meant BRRRR for being cold!!

Steve,
I thought it was HONEST Opinion? I guess there's not much of a difference.

Thanks, John...

That link to the automotive abbreviations went directly into my bookmarks!

And "c230man" (sounds like an invitation to visit the dentist, "see tooth hurty-man") OEM actually means Original Equipment Manufacturer...

MBenz:

Yes, LOL means "laughing out loud". And Steve already covered IMHO, "in my humble opinion". There's also these:

ROFL - Rolling On Floor Laughing.

ROFLMFAO - Rolling On Floor Laughing My F%#*ing A@* Off.

LMAO - Laughing My A#@ Off.

FYI - For Your Information.

FWIW - For What It's Worth.

AAMOF - As A Matter Of Fact.

AIYDK - As If You Didn't Know.

ICYDK - In Case You Didn't Know.

AIIC - As If I Cared.

BTDT - Been There, Done That.

BTW - By The Way.

LNGT - Let's Not Go There.

MBenz,

The first time I saw LOL, I thought it meant "Lots Of Love" and figured there were some really friendly board members. After reading some "funny" posts it dawned on me.

What does YMMV mean? I think that's the one I've seen

c230man's Argument Is So Compelling...

But it's wrong...:p Sorry...

If you checked the links to the thread and website that JCE posted, you would have read:

Why do you think that it means what you think it does?...

And BrianW, YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary. It means you may not get the same results...
