Postby bigh0rt » Mon Sep 04, 2006 8:42 pm

Feel free to add/correct, and I'll make revisions. Maybe this can get stickified like over on the Light Side. ;-D

Could be either.

I've always thought BUMP, just meant literally, to bump your post up to the top of the board. Didn't know it really was also an acronym for "bring up my post".

It usually is but can be either. This is good. It'd be great if we could also get one made up for SABR terms.

Feel free to reply with anything not listed, and I'll gladly add them to the original database post. I would've done more, but by the time I had done all that, I was fried :-°
