    WAC -- What a **** -- Most often used towards our beloved GIMH.
    WAFC -- What a ****ing **** -- Most often used towards GIMH when he's not quite so beloved any more.
    GIMH -- Geriant Is My Hero -- showing the, erm, questionable taste in cricketer afflicting our not-at-all-beloved GIMH.
    WAG -- What a Guy -- Rarely used towards other posters (unless sarcastically), but often towards cricketers who seem like nice enough blokes.
    IIRC -- If I Remember Correctly -- Spoiler alert: you probably haven't.
    ITSTL -- Interesting to Say the Least -- The response when somebody says something controversial but you cbf getting into a multi-page fight about it.
    CBF -- Can't Be ****ed -- Because let's face it, we're all cynical, jaded, lazy bastards.
    TBH -- To Be Honest -- When you're criticising someone but feel bad about it.
    IMO -- In My Opinion -- Also known as the "I'm spouting utter tripe but people are more likely to accept it if I claim it's my opinion and not fact" acronym.
    AWTA -- Agree With the Above -- When some wordsmith has put it better than you ever could, and you're lazy enough to bludge off of their posting efforts.
    ICC -- International Criminal Court -- Not sure if this is strictly accurate, but they're probably the most relevant group with the initials ICC.
    BCCI -- Board of Control for Cricket in India -- Literal spawn of the devil. Do not argue this definition.
    IPL -- Indian Premier League -- If you want to fit in, hate it and treat it with utter disdain.
    BBL -- Big Bash League -- Australia's IPL rip-off. Supporting this is acceptable, unless you like the Sydney Thunder, in which case no...just no.


    Also watch out for Kippax; everything he says needs to be run through an Agribusiness translator multiple times to come out even remotely sensical.

    We are obviously missing an ATG acronym thread.
