Computer/Email shorthand

Here's a simple one for practically everyone except ME

Is there a listing of all (or at least the most used) the computer shorthand somehwere? ie: lol=laugh out loud, btw=by the way, etc.

I know it saves time, disc space, etc. but I don't want to be insulting anybody by inventing my own and then finding out I just swore at them...

Thanks for your help

Howie

Just a reminder that it is the offical tradmark of Despair Inc.

This is the company that tried to sue the entire internet community for trademark infringement.

p.s. I did download my offical licence to use it in this e-mail

Thx xiii13 & mrhoadar!

NOW I may be able to understand some of the other forum chat that I see...

I'll keep the warning about the sad emoticon in mind - is the colon with the opening bracket (no dash) okay to use?
