Thank you to everyone who responded to my question (except Kacee who needs to tell yahoo to use spell check since I copied and pasted the word acroyms).

Re POS...

Last year, when it was taking longer than expected to conceive my son, I joined a TTC (Trying To Conceive) group. We use POS there a lot -- only it stands for "Pee On a Stick" (as in a home pregnancy test). Whenever I see it outside that forum that's what I think of; I know what the person really means but (because I'm such an adult) still read it like that and giggle to myself. ;-)

ETC - edited to correct

I love TSTL h when the story is badly written..... And the book is free. It can be so bad that the book is funny.

ETA book is free

I could actually use that one, only it would be Principal Over Shoulder. I might need to remember that! ;0)

Back when my kids were in high school and instant messaging was popular, POS also stood for Parent Over Shoulder =)

MC=main character
OP=original poster, as in the poster who started the thread (discussion)
MoC=marriage of convenience (most often found in historicals)
And sometimes found in erotic discussions...took me ages to figure this one out...piv, which stands for peni$-in-vag**a sex (vs more...adventurous types!).

That reminds me of another acronym: POV - Point of View

Also we see this a lot in these discussions: YMMV - Your Mileage May Vary (meaning "you may see things differently")

POW = Piece of Work, which I think is a sanitized version of POS.

But in full disclosure I should admit I spent some time when I first saw that one trying to figure out what war was being referenced.

Piece of, um, excrement in the vernacular.

Thank you. I didn't want to be the first to post an objection.

However, be aware that both you and I have now allowed this person to officially derail the thread. I suggest we all just put her on ignore.

(Shame that a member doesn't see the "Customers don't think this post adds to the discussion" result for her own posts.)

Here are some that baffled me once:

IIRC - if I remember correctly
IMO - in my opinion
OTT - over the top

*POS - This one still gets me. I get it in the sentence sometimes and then forget what it means????

edit - to add another
