Regulars--For newbies: Is there a list or post that has the lingo/ abbreviations and what they mean?

Sorry, I've been here for a bit and I still don't know and can't figure out what ETA means.
There's also a few other abbreviations that I'm still figuring out.

    ETA means "edited to add".  When a poster posts a thread, they sometimes edit it to add information, clarify a point, or correct grammar.  Then they add ETA so that if someone had already read the post, it alerts the reader that something new or different has been added/changed.  Here is a list of the majority of abbreviations.....

    Abbreviation    Meaning
    BC, BCPBirth Control, Birth Control Pills
    BFBoyfriend or Best Friend
    BMBridesmaid or Best Man
    BPBridal Party

    When someone creates a post and then deletes it after people have taken the time to respond.  Usually they do it cos they don't like the answers they got or they feel the information was too personal and don't want it out on the internet anymore.  

    It's considered rude for the most part cos other posters could read the post in the future and learn without having to ask the same question that is already on the board 18 times.  It is usually also pointless in deleting cos others have quoted the post and everyone can still read it anyway
