I have been on the Forums for a long time, and I have seen a lot of acrostics, and abbreviations. But I just can't figure out what IIRC stands for . Can someone tell me please?

Perhaps, Facts Of Life (this is my real guess, my last one was just a joke, since I couldn't think of any actual answers).

No, no, that was my real answer (yeah right). Didn't you catch the sarcasm, in the post where I denied it (yeah right). How could you have possibly thought that I didn't get the right answer? :wink:

I was going to ask what IDGARA stood for, but I don't think it's appropriate for discussion .

If that's the case, you'll never see me using the latter. :frown:

LOL Kyle! I think only net gamers would understand 1337. (does anyone who doesn't play online games understand it?)

I understand all of the sentence except for the CWOT and FTF...

(PS: Kyle, I only just figured out that your name is most likely 'Kyle. B.' and not 'Ki-leb' )
