    Kind of new to this forum. I have figured out what OT and F/S mean, but what does it mean when someone replied to a thread with "up"?

    Along with UP some people use an up arrow ^, some say "bump", and others TTT (To The Top).<br>
    <br>
    It's a good tool for important posts that are dropping down the board.<br>
    <br>
    However, like all tools, it can be abused too. Like people who post a gun for sale, and every three to four hours they run their ad to the top again. The annoyance factor along makes me not want to purchase whatever it is they're selling.

    Start with TYT and STW (take your time and search the web).

    Have you not seen the cell phone commercial where the little girl is talking to her mom in text speak? People really talk like that now. You don't have to be a tweedler anymore to hear it.

    Better not get left behind...

    Amazing...

    This thread has 24 hits not counting mine.

    But, "POI Gracoil VS standard stock" thread has one...the poster.

    Go figure...
