Istilah-istilah yang sering dipakai di Dunia Internet

These are all abbreviations for specific phrases commonly used in informal written computer correspondence, online forums and boards, and online gaming. Following are some common acronyms and their meanings:

AFAIC = As far as I'm concerned
AFAIK = As far as I know
AFK = Away from keyboard
BRB = Be right back
BTDT = Been there, done that
BTW = By the way
BUAG = Butt-ugly ASCII graphic
C/C = Comments and criticism
EOM = End of message
FAQ = Frequently Asked Question. When people say "the FAQ", they are generally referring to a list of answers to Frequently Asked Questions. These are posted monthly on many newsgroups or mailing lists to reduce discussion of topics that have already been thoroughly covered. It's a good idea to look at a FAQ file for a newsgroup or mailing list before participating in it. For help in finding FAQ files, see Where can I find a repository of Usenet FAQ files? A large list of all known FAQ postings in newsgroups is also posted periodically in the Usenet newsgroup news.admin.

l33t or 1337 = From "elite". This has become a term used to describe the informal communication of Internet gaming. L33t speak is easily identified by the substitution of number and other characters for regular letters; e.g., hackers becomes h4XX0rz.

It's good netiquette to mail this type of answer to another user rather than post it in public messages.
