    btw, what does G.O.P really stand for? (As in the republican party).

    Is it Good Ol' Party, or Government Of People or Go Partisan Politics or what?

    LOL means Laughing Out Loud, usually. There may be times when people use LOL for Lots of Love, but everywhere I've seen it on the internet, it was when people are making a joke.

    *wrong* KMFDM = Kill mother-effing Depeche Mode

    this is a common misconception, KMFDM is an acronym for a phrase in german that roughly translated means 'no pity for the masses'.

    "Easy! You just don't lead 'em as much!

    OMFG, I'm such an unobservant twit! We can use raw HTML in our posts? If that's the case, then why do we use those silly square brackets for bold, etc.? Why not just make everyone use regular HTML instead of that evil UBB crud? (Note: UBB is the devil's markup language!)

    Oh yeah, as for my own contribution...

    Play By E-Mail. It's one of the multiplayer ways to play civ III. It's a slow game, no doubt as you email your games back and forth...

    Spank them, it's incorrect.

    SoD = Stack of Death

    Often refers to the AIs love for stacking his troops into one stack. 30+ Infantry stacks are not uncommon in Civ 3 (you'd never see it in previous civ games)

    Hmmm. Makes sense. Does anyone use "SoP"? Stack of Pain? For, say, 5 veteran archers + 1 spearmen coming on a frontier city in the ancient age?

    So did I... so now you are minus 10%

    And statusperfect and Spiffor... I wouldn't recommend using the term +1 in any future post... even if you are quoting somebody... because Ming Math is simple... +1 = -10%
