Online Lingo - Text Messaging - Text Shorthand

These acronyms and abbreviations, sometimes also designated as shorthand, are employed and used by computer users, or whenever bridge players are online. They can also be employed for instant messaging, cell phone texting, newsgroups, blogs, which can then be user-specific. The user should also be aware that there are many not listed here and also that the "C" and the "S" can be used for "See"; this is also the case with the "U" and the "Y", which can be used for "you".

The reader should also be aware that digital emoji such as " :) or :( " are not included as they can be perhaps employed in different, sometimes negative manner. Online bridge conversations should also be conducted according to the same guidelines of the Zero Tolerance principle, and should also be observed at all times.

Note: any reader, who wishes to add to this present list, can do this by sending email.
