I've seen the acronym "QFA" a few times here. Can anyone tell me what that means?

It's when losers with nothing new to say simply write "Quoted for Agreement."

Ugh... It's fine to use a few acronyms, but these are just all too much.

> NO TITLE ABBREVIATIONS -unless- the title you are abbreviating is in the topic. Example: The topic is "Weird Al's new hit _Craigslist_ is now out!". To reply to this, you could write: "CL is hilarious!" or whatever you like.

> NO INITIALIZING NAMES - names include an IRC channel, like #really_long_chat_room_name. DO NOT shorten it, doing something like #rlcrn; it is confusing. Don't initialize Weird Al Yankovic to `WAY'. Why not just say Al? or say Weird Al? It is much less confusing, and takes less letters to type. Al. It is only two characters long. WAY is 3 characters long. Therefore, Al wins by being both less ambiguous and faster to type.

After all, when programming, you would not do something like this: (it explains
why it is not good, in the comments, which are preceeded by #'s.)

#!python
# This is a Python script. Google Python - I'm not going to explain it here!
#
# We're going to assign the words "Weird Al" to WAY.
WAY = "Weird Al"
# ... and print it to the screen:
print WAY
#
# THINK ABOUT IT! You could've used more time doing other things,
# and not wasting time assigning the variable WAY to "Weird Al". You
# could have written it like this:
#
# print("Weird Al")
#
# It is much cleaner than:
#
# WAY = "Weird Al"
# print WAY
#
# Because you don't have to tell the computer/reader to remember the variable/
# acronym. You can just write your message and be done with it. Heck, if you're
# going to do what this Python script does, then you should define every acronym
# that are titles/names at the beginning of each message you use them in.

# So, you'd do this:
#
# DEFINITIONS:
# + ILWAY = I like Weird Al Yankovic
# + ATIARLM = and this is a really long message.
# + IHYCUI = I hope you can understand it.
#
# ILWAY ATIARLM IHYCUI!

# Is this really a good way to write? You could've saved time by using only common
# terms, like IMHO/IMO, LOL, troll, i.e., e.g., etc., et al., (etc.)
