    I often see jargon or many abbreviations when people post and it's taken for granted people understand what they are talking about. Sure if I'm here long enough, like several hundred or more posts, I may pick up a bunch of it, but I'd rather speed up progress!

    Can you please list some abbreviations you guys use here and what they mean?

    Also,

    If you have questions on what a certain abbreviation means, this is a good place to ask!

    What does p/c mean? I'm thinking piston/cylinder, but not sure.

    WOT = wide open throttle (very popular!)

    PITA = pain in the *ss (one of my personal favorites)

    IMHO = in my humble opinion (I use this a lot cuz I don't actually KNOW anything)

    You guys crack me up! Thanks for all the feedback. It's enlightening.

    However, I should have mentioned "Abbreviations as they pertain to chainsaws." LOL!

    Thanks!

    But it's all good. :D
