    A good reference for "net lingo" can be found at http://www.netlingo.com/ which one can find the meaning to a great number of truncated words. I know what I know from too many years in ****** forums, and still I am regularly stumped by acronyms. It doesn't help that every profession and social class has their own acronyms for things that have no meaning to the general populace.
    now you sound like you have a psych degree. (I wonder if ole sprucey is trying to figure and label us all?)

    I was just thinking about OP and the different meanings that I have run into during my life-
    Operations Officer
    Out of Print
    Optional Procedure
    Order Processing
    Observation Point
    Operating Plan
    Operating Pressure
    Operators Panel

    and I'm sure that there are more. It can sure get confusing.
