    And a question...what does meh mean?
  • Bo_SelectaBo_Selecta Members, Constellation Join Date: 2002-11-19 Member: 9374Posts: 358
    meh is not an acronym or an abbreviation, meh is... meh.
    meh is usually used as a sign of indifference.

    You forgot to add that HA = Heavy Armored Marine. That's important.

    Should'nt it be HAM? :o

    Surprised you haven't added/considered the following:

    lamer - One whose sole purpose is to ruin the game (you misplelt it)
    llama - someone who changes name frequently or uses handles such as 'n00b/newb/nub/lamer/leet/Player/rookie' usually to give the impression they are below average players when in fact the opposite is true

    aff - affirmative [yes]
    rgr - roger [yes]
    neg - negative [no]
    inc - incoming

    medspam - A procedure involving the rapid supply of medpacks by the Commander to heal a player(s) taking or who have taken considerable damage.
    warcow - Onos
    phatteh / phattey - Gorge

    Some I personally use lms to mean last man standing but this situation is less common in NS, although it can apply to players on the opposite team defending a location etc.

    ADD ftw NOW!

    I doubt anyone actually reads this, but there's one acronym that people keep asking what it means:

    idd - Indeed

    With "ftw - For the win! " being a close second in the "What does that mean?" scale.

    The most glaring omission for me was the all time number one american saying...

    'OMG'

    Frequently used instead of an honest 'i got owned', and means much the same thing: Oh My God...
