Hello,

Isn't it difficult to remember ALL of those acronyms ya 
have to fill in on most of the eLiTe boards...
That's why I started on this list (released by D. Leria)
of the most important acronyms today.
First I'll start with the ordinary acronyms, followed by 
the eLiTe groups.

								The Bishop.

Yo, this is Black Muzi speakin'
So, Bishop, eheh. I completed this list a bit.. actually, not a little
bit. From 11K to 100K.. Not bad uh. So, If anyone else knows some other
acronyms, just put them in this list, write a letter (like I do know)
but let our names stand and then up it everywhere you ever call (then
you get some more creditz at least;)
So, at the end of Bishops list you'll find much other acronyms, not sorted
or anything, I just added it to this list, so it could be that you'll some 
acronyms twice. Anyway, enjoy it
								Black Muzi.
