Sometime's it's hard to remember that people are new to the internet. It feels like some of this stuff is common knowledge at this point, but it's really not. Some more "jargon"

SO - significant other
IMO - in my opinion
OMG - oh my god

"bump" means someone is moving the thread to the top of the page when no one has commented for awhile and it's been shuffled to the bottom
