What are LOL, ROFL, and a bunch of other letters mean?

These are chat/internet abbreviations. This is some of the more popular (I'm not going to include ones that wouldn't be acceptable on FW spelled out):

LOL - Laughing Out Loud, Lots of Laughter, Lots of Love
ROFL - Rolling On the Floor Laughing
GMTA -Great Minds Think Alike
TY -Thank You
YW - You're Welcome
AFK - Away From Keyboard
BRB -Be Right Back
WB - Welcome Back
A/S/L - Age/Sex/Lcation
JMHO -Just My Humble Opinion
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
HAGN - Have A Good Night

Here is a link to a page that has more (it has the bad words starred out)

This will not be an exhaustive list, as new ones are added all the time :)
