The Importance of Acronyms

A few folks who took the survey to the right indicated they didn't know what NSFW meant.

Since this is an extremely important piece of information that could affect your livelyhood, I present it here as a Public Service Announcement.

NSFW indicates that the link is Not Suitable For Work. Meaning it contains nudity, obscenity or anything else that the 40 year old virgin IT geeks who set up the filters at work don't think you should be looking at between boring meetings.

You're welcome.

P.S. - When I first started IMing and someone would "LOL" me, I thought it meant "Lots Of Love". This simple misundertanding led to some very confusing and humiliating chats.

Not that you can't do sex with symbols.

ROFLMAO! Oh, fiery! You crack me up! I thought I was the master of eflirting, but even I never used :-~o:

That's awesome!

Fiery said...

You haven't eflirted until you've eflirted with me. ;)

Too hot to handle and definitely NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK!!!!!

Fiery said...

Well.... I suppose you can do it while you're at work, but you better have a straight shot to the toilet.
