What does “ISO” stand for?

Recommended Posts

I am sure I will feel foolish for not knowing but I have wasted too much time trying to guess!  Thanks in advance for the lesson.

Don't feel out of sorts. I have been holding off on what BTT means, or when people say Bump. 

 

I love people who use IMHO - in my humble opinion. Which doesn't really mean they consider their opinion to be humble, more passive/aggressive writing.

Nimble, we could start a topic about Acronyms used on this wire. What say you? Would help us newbies.

Ok why do you use “ISO” instead of WTB want to buy, unless you are looking for someone to offer it to you as a gift?

I say we go back to writing complete words in forum posts and let the shortcuts stay in texts!  Not bein onery just thinking that too much away from a good vocabulary foundation.

Thank you for the reference. This is much much better than what I had envisioned - but then I'm more or less stuck in the 70"s.

To be proper,  you should spell it out first followed by parentheses with the acronym.  Such as: Fuel Oil (FO). 

In this manner everyone knows what you're talking about throughout your discussion. 

 

Just 2 cents worth, 

BS

You all think this is funny but wait until your doctor starts substituting letters for words and see how your nurse likes it!  Of course after looking at prescriptions the 

doctor writes maybe he does already!

My sisters used to email and text me all those lovely abbreviations and acronyms. 

So, once when I was visiting back home I started using them during our conversation. They got the point very quickly after I spouted a few sentences use the abbreviations instead of saying the words.

EXAMPLE:

“Bee Tee Double You...This could make for a very annoying character in a comedy skit, don’t you think Ell Oh Ell. It would have people Are Oh Eff Ell Em Aye Oh, dontcha think?”

 

Grrrrrr....:P
