When you visit any IRC channel, you may see someone say
something difficult for a newbie to understand. These are called
abbreviations. It is very common to see them on IRC.

I thought it would be nice for you to understand what people are
saying when using abbreviated words and symbols. This is a page
dedicated to the strange things people sometimes say on IRC :)

If you have anymore abbreviations that can be used on IRC,
E-Mail them to the address at the bottom of the page.
