@BilltheLizard I searched with po and find the answer, then I find there ppl are using MSO, SO. how do I know the link of Dictionary or Commonly -used terms..... any way thanks for your answer and your vote. – Padma Kumar Jan 19 '12 at 16:15
@PadmaKumar I did a Meta search for 'abbreviations' and the glossary post came up in the results. I admit, it does help when you've seen the post before and you already know what you're looking for. – Bill the Lizard Jan 19 '12 at 16:18
@BilltheLizard i just searched with keys not the dictionary term. I am sorry for that. – Padma Kumar Jan 19 '12 at 16:23
@PadmaKumar No worries. – Bill the Lizard Jan 19 '12 at 16:32

MSO - Meta StackOverflow
SO - StackOverflow
OP - Original Poster

Don't know what others you may mean.

SU - SuperUser
SF - ServerFault
CW - Community Wiki
SE - Stack Exchange
SEI - Stack Exchange, Inc
SOFU - StackOverflow + ServerFault + SuperUser 

All of these appear in the Stack Overflow Glossary.

is there any more... – Padma Kumar Jan 19 '12 at 16:06
@PadmaKumar - I am not aware of a huge number of others, though I am happy for others to edit and add here. – Oded Jan 19 '12 at 16:07
@PadmaKumar: Yep, that's the page Oded linked. ;) – Robert Harvey Jan 19 '12 at 16:12
@RobertHarvey - to Padma's defence, it probably wasn't there when the comment was posted. – Oded Jan 19 '12 at 16:19
@Oded ist not showing any edited answers in your post. in SO i can see "edited 5 min ago" like that. but not in your's why? – Padma Kumar Jan 19 '12 at 16:24
@PadmaKumar - first 5 minutes of edits are a "grace period" where this will not happen. – Oded Jan 19 '12 at 17:44
