Time for BikeForums speak! List them all!

The interwebz and Text have their own words, phrases, and abbreviations.

Why not BikeForums? Let's get them all in one place so we can make a list.

Just wanted to drope the idea. 400 watts do you think? Is my idea Mt. Doom....ed? Or ........correct?

Help me out, don't be a negative drag.

Yes, really! Maybe there should be a "rode (road)" forum section, a Pcad section, and what else?
