That's great! Un-hip folks like me need a little help with the smiley's and acronyms sometimes. I like it.

They have the uncensored definition of RTFM (!), but they don't include the definition for TTYL (talk to you later).

They also don't have my favorite sneering/smirking smiley

I know Gary Price will be upset again, but I must say IAC Search & Media is a big expert in smileys.

I think it's clever that things like /. work as well:

I have a random comment. uses the most bandwith of any search robot, but I almost NEVER get linked from their search results.

Why do you think that is?

Jasper: We do have some and are adding more.


You'll also see that these results direct link to an article about chat acronyms and NetLingo's dictionary.
