Is there a forum glossary?

I've noticed a lot of abbreviations used like IAL and BBW and SSP and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious :p and it would be nice if there was a glossary to refer to, since I have no idea what half of these things are as a total newb.

Thanks!

" Delta tail or double tail (usually the latter)
DBT = Double tail," I just wanted to clarify. Isn't Delta tail DeT and Doubletail DT instead?

You can call me Blu for short!

Could be, I was just copying from prior threads.
I saw both
since DT is vague,
DbT for double tail and
DeT for delta tail would be more specific...
