    After 3 months not knowing what it meant I finally figured it out....

    RTFM means "Read THE F****** Manual"


    Any others that people feel they should add? And should this be 'sticky' for thickies like me?

    The first time I saw LOL as a sign off, I came up with Learn On Line! LOL

    I saw in a thread somewhere, that there is actually a dictionary for text messaging abbreviations. . . . anyone have a link?

    I could have searched, but it would've just bought up every single mention of RTFM and not the meaning of it. I couldn't be arsed to look through them all, so I patiently waited for the meaning to present itself.

    I thought other things like UDSM could feature on this thread too.

    For a long time I signed off LOL thinking it meant "Lots of Luck". So if any of you, during that time, took it the wrong way, I'm sorry. If you didn't take it the wrong way then you may be just as confused as I was.

    I always wondered why you were laughing at everyone...in fact, I was once going to ask you what so damn funny all the time.

    Good thing you weren't a Moderator then- you might have given me a "time out".

    I wouldn't have done that. In my own little odd way, I thought it was hilarious.

    How about a Google search?

    BTW - RTFM was not an Internet abbreviation per se. People in tech support would use to reference people who called with the most basic of questions. I use it in online chats with my colleagues every day - about others.

    Why would anyone really refer to unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine in a chat anyway?
