I think it is Battle of Brittain or, Bulletin board.

- HL=Halflife?? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hyperlobby, the only server we all use to play online games!!

- SWOTL

Secret weapons of the luftwaffe, it is a very old and very good WWII flightsim game, with a big dose of "what if" scenarios.

- RL=Real life??

Yes

- Imho=In my honest opinion??

yes

- DOD

Dunno, it might be: Department of Defense but, I'm not sure.

HL = Hyperlobby
RL = Real Life
SWOTL = Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe(old Lucasarts WWII flight sim)
Imho = you may be right with "in my honest opinion"
DoD = as far as I know to me means - Day of Defeat. Its an online WWII first person shooter. Allthough thats a guess. Here it could be short for some flying term.

As for BB I'm used to seeing that associated with a battleship but thats a guess too.

Just to add a little something to what has already been said:
I think IMHO is actually In My Humble Opinion, but same difference...
Also, DoD might stand for Day of Defeat, but I'm just guessing here.

I thought LOL meant laughing out loud. What about IIRC? Is this If I recall correctly (or something like that)?

To avoid the frustration of misfortune,
That, in this world, is happiness.
