Does it disturb anyone else that the abbreviation for "I am not a lawyer" (IANAL) might be misconstrued as I'm Anal?  Or am I just a little off? ;)

I think it's the latter.  ;)

In my case it's BOTH!

in favor of using the more 'net common ITA (I Totally Agree)
If ITA is so common, why isn't it listed in the pinned post on abbreviations?  I looked at 3 different internet sites for 'net abbreviations and ITA wasn't listed on any of them.
Of course, now that I see it, I know what it means, but I wouldn't call it "common."

What does OP mean?  as in.. "I agree with what the OP said.."

Offended Party?  Opening Post?  Ostrasized person?  I'm confused...

Thanks!

You're quite welcome. Glad to help.  Oh, and welcome, in case I didn't say it before.

What does "AFAIK" mean?  From context, it means something like IMO, I think...?

AFAIK means "As far as I know."

I'd kinda like to see us lose some of the alphabet soup myself.

How about 'PA'?  I have seen it a couple of times, and in the contexts of the posts I have seen it in, it doesn't seem like it would be short for Pennsylvania. 

Thanks!!

Unless it's referring to Pennsylvania, it means "passive-aggressive."
