POD actually means "Post Of the Day." Synonym of FTW "For the win" (as in, your post wins the thread.) Meant to be used for the best post on a thread.

Ive never heard that definition for POD.

I always thought it meant, I agree.

On this board, it DOES mean I agree. Like Peas in a Pod. Just here though.

It's actually not exclusive to here at all, it comes from another forum when this one used to be on Delphooey.  I think during that time, the term sort of migrated over to the EHell board.

Yes I didn't know what POD was either.  ::)

Sadly the more posts I read the more abbrv I find that aren't on this list; maybe if needs to be updated? :-\

The most recent one that stumped me: MLM

MLM is multi-level marketing.  Like Amway or some other home-based businesses

Heh thnx. Actually ended up googling 'abbreviation definitions MLM'. (You won't believe how many defs there are for POD! :o) Multi-level marketing seemed closest to what the people on here were talking about.  :)

If it hadn't been for the context I would have been forever trying to guess what mother relation they were talking about (MIL, MOB, MOG, etc.)  ::) (Mother Losing Mind?  ;))

Cass said in the linked abbreviations post further up that it occurred during chat on Delphooey .. chat from ehell when it was there, not another forum.

I always think of pod people when I see it.  Then my mind drifts to soylent green.  Or maybe sheeple.
