What does QFT mean? And if anyone wants to fill me in on other abbreviations that are used I'd appreciate it. I've got most of them down, but this one throws me every time.

It can also mean Quit Fucking Typing, and you can't always tell which meaning people intend.

In this way, QFT is similar to GFY, which supposedly means Good For You.

GFY
Funny, but Good For You was not the first thing that came to mind...

I'd take a guess at what did come to mind, but I'll spare the innocence of those reading the thread.

You? Spare someone's innocence?

WTF?

Can those be added to FennelGiraffe's AW's Dictionary thread? http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1898706&postcount=43

I couldn't figure out what QFT and a few others and consulted that thread but they're not listed. Thank you!

ETA: For those of you who also get lost on acronyms, check out FenilleGiraffle's terrific list above.

I use ESAD in conjunction with FOAD.

Ah yes, PTOP is GFY, IMHO :D

FYI, one can use GTH instead of QFT#2 ;)

I've never used QFT as it seems to me to be too much like the dreaded Internet response (after quoting hundreds of lines of text everyone has already read from the immediately prior post) "Me too."

But I've wanted to quote a particularly hilarious post or portion thereof and then type QFH. Or quote an absolutely false statement and say QFF.

Yeah, QFT appears to have come up since that thread was last added to.

And of course since that thread is locked, there's no possible way of adding to it. (here's your chance, folks...)

On Friday, I enjoyed saying to people at work:

"See You Next Tuesday."

But then I am easily amused. :D
