Abbreviation Translations

At the risk of being perceived as dumb, I'm wondering if anyone can provide a breakdown or translation of all the acronyms and abbreviations that the veteran users on this site routinely use.  After reading some of the posts several times, I have been able to decifer some of them based upon the context in which they're used but it's very time consuming.  

 

I have found this forum to be very helpful and enlightening.  I just think it would help others like me to know the meanings behind the shortcuts that you guys are using when submitting posts.

Re: Abbreviation Translations

Smiley Happy Your Welcome! Welcome to the forum which I neglected to say the first time! There is one very important thing to remember here, the only dumb question is the one never asked. Feel free to personal message me anytime if you have a question you feel uncomfortable asking on the forum. Good Luck on your credit journey!
