forum accronyms

Post FORUM SPECIFIC questions here: Such as, "HELP, I can't keep logged in for more than one session" etc... Not general help questions such as "my car won't start". You get the idea?

not really an acronym but in some cases Z and S are interchangeable apparently

yeah, i'm all for using acronyms, but there is just plain lazy. I hate (with a complete passion) poor spelling.

the 's'/'z' thing winds me up a treat. much the same as 'm8' 'uve' 'ur' etc.

there are foreign members of the board (and others that I use) that use better english than that.

The 's'/'z' thing is explainable-

The UK spelling uses an 's', where the US spelling prefers a 'z'. I've gotten used to the US way, since my version of MS Word has this as standard.

On topic,

I prefer to keep this place as neat as possible, (personal dysfunction probably), it means that things like ALL CAPS, m8, ur, and all that annoy me too...
