Could those of you out there that know all the letter lingo teach all of us who don't?

Example: IMO- In my opinion, LOL- Laugh out loud, PM- Private message

ROFLMAO - Rolling on floor laughing my a$$ off
OMG - Oh My God (goodness, gosh, whatever)

These acronyms have also moved into our popular lexicon. I have students who actually say "fyi" and faq. Even btw.

I have to assume that the people who use these acronyms wouldn't have a much higher mark whether acronyms were used or not, right? I mean they can't be the sharper than spoons, right?
