    Some of these abbreviations may be useful. Especially the known ones like LOL, LMAO, AR, B&M. But there's some of these I've never heard and I'd have to ask what the heck it meant Mr Green

    Like IWG, AFAIK, BVG, IMAO

    I hate seeing deal listings on other sites with all these abbreviations. It is not uncommon for something to be listed:

    Super Super Thingamabob $10 AR and BCB @ WM B&M YMMV

    And then OP is attacked for not listing enough abbreviations!

    GACK! Just list the deal!

    Sorry, know let me step down off my soapbox.

    Thanks

    Yes, I think this would be a useful page for the wiki. But please don't encourage overuse in deals.
