I get the feeling that if we were to try to list the acronyms of every different church group in the world then we'd a) have a very long list and b) miss a lot out.

Apart from the specialised religious abbreviations (MBS, OL&SJC, etc), are there any Ship acronyms that people think are actually unique to the Ship, as opposed to being rather standard internet forum usage, e.g. BTW, OTOH, IMO, etc?

OK Marvin...what's SotS and TnT?

I seem to think SotS would be "Star of the Sea", but can't recall what that means. An alternate name for the Orthodox Church, perhaps?

TnT was a board for discussing all things to do with sex - yep, really. It was called Let's Talk Tits'n'Testicles.

Before the Ecclesiantics board was formed, there were two areas where worship was discussed, one which tended to be very high church and the other which was for alternative worship type stuff. I suggested the name for the combined board should be 'Let's Talk Tat'n'Tealights', but sadly the Powers That Be didn't go for it... [Biased]

Is GLE (Good Little Evangelical) unique to the Ship?

Well if it is original (and it may well be), it certainly isn't unique. In fact, in the circles in which I move, it's quite common shorthand for a particular type of Christain, typically a woman in her early thirties with tee-shirt, knee length trousers, short hair, little rucksack on back....you know the sort of thing.

DH isn't unique - it means "dear husband" on most boards I frequent.

And, as a lay Dominican, I occasionally get a bit confused by people referring to "the OP*."

Ah yes. SotS. I forgot about the private boards.

And now that you defined TnT, I remember it. I saw it a few times when popping in from extended shore-leave. It was ermm...interesting

Thanks.

I've seen the "DH" or "DP" for "D___ Husband" or "Partner" elsewhere--especially on the E.F. Benson Yahoo Group (although they seemed to self-destruct in a fit of pique last week).

DH for "Dead Horse", however, must be peculiar to the Ship.

Yes, I know of DH for Dear/Darling/Damn Husband, and DBF, DP, DS, DD correspondingly. They happen a lot on very chatty, bloggy sites where people post threads with names like "Oh no, I burned the toast again!"

(Affectionate spoofing there, BTW, I'm an active member of one of these.)

We certainly do, we have duplicates, most can be sorted by context but

UCC = United Church of Christ
and
UCC = United Church in Canada

can be confusing as I found to my cost. It is not helped that UC can also be Unitarian Church although they do use UUC=Unitarian and Universalist Church and in England are officially ULCC = Unitarian and Liberal Christian Church.

I may have overlooked these, but I don't think they've been mentioned on this thread:

ABC - Archbishop of Canterbury
BVM - Blessed Virgin Mary
PSA - Penal Substitutionary Atonement (I introduced this acronym in a seminary class a couple years ago, and everyone was really grateful for it!)

Not acronyms, but shorthand:
Piskie - an Episcopalian
congo - congregation

And a couple more church acronyms that perhaps don't get used much here:

AoG or (as I've always used it) A/G - Assemblies of God
AME - African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME Zion being a different but related denomination)
CME - Christian Methodist Episcopal
MBC - Missionary Baptist Church

Flood control is the time limit on how soon you can make a second post after the first one. It keeps people from flooding the boards with messages. A read through the History of the Ship thread will show you why it was added.

The software here includes a control that means that you can't make a post within 2 minutes of another post. This is designed to prevent a spammer flooding the boards with junk ... needing to wait at least 2 mins at least slows the down and gives the admins a chance to ban them before too much trouble is caused. "Flood control" is a very apt description.

It's slang peculiar to chatrooms whose chats are listed according to the last person who spoke in them. If someone thinks their message has been insufficiently responded to, they say nothing but "bump," to bump it up to the top of the list, as it were. If done wrongly it can seem a bit rude.

P.S. other slang peculiar to the ship (or at least, that people outside the ship find confusing) -

MOTR - middle of the road
AffCath - Affirming Catholic/Catholicism
The Candle/The Altimetre - How "high" or "low" a church is
(whence "climbing/descending the candle," "high up the candle" &c)
PBC - prayer-book Catholic

Also, for English people, BCP doesn't automatically mean that of 1662 on the ship.

I keep seeing PCC where it can't possibly mean The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Is it Anglicanese for something?

I should have known that - thank you. Not only that, the same initials belonged to a company in the same business just up the road from here. Given local demographics, their people would likely have been Lutheran rather than the other PCC.
