Throw your brick bats now at an old fart who has never sent a 'text', advertised in a lonely hearts column or anything else, which in this day and age requires the mandatory use of abbrebiations in order to hold a conversation or get ones message across! Indeed, in my day use of abbreviations was most frowned upon. Several abbreviations crop up endlessly on ARRSE, and I don't know what they mean. Can we start a dictionary of them, please? LOL, BTW, WTF, Etc (I know that one!), for example. Thanks.
