[quote]It was not a forum post I saw RFT in. It was some descriptions of peoples cakes and what they were made of.
When i was searching for the answer ot this RFT acronym, i found this post in a thread


Had a thought ...what if a subtle reference was made to her a water setting....the timeline of stuff could be resting on dingies(sp?) and she's on a boat....heading toward the horizon..."smooth sailing from now on..." OSLT
and now i don't know what OSLT is??

any ideas or experiences?

is there an actual list?

i don't know if I'm just being my usual dumb self, but this doesn't seem to be working, I can only see 6 abbreviations when I click on the link icon_sad.gif

a compiled list would really really be great, because I'm very new to all of this and am embarrassed to keep asking what things mean. thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

Hi I just joined *waves hello*, but I can't find the acronyms page.
I followed the link to: but it goes to the home page with a different page title - I can't see a list anywhere.
Has it moved?
