Title: FAQ: DMF Vocabulary--Common Terms and Acronyms
Post by: Spidey on September 01, 2008, 11:27:45 AM
A few common words/phrases are DMF-specific and may require some explanation.

  • "Beast with two backs"  It means "f-u-c-k".  If you don't change the filter in your profile, the board software automatically replaces the f-word with beast with two backs.  For more background and how to turn off your filter, click HERE (http://ducatimonsterforum.org/index.php?topic=3228.msg45519#msg45519)
  • Bacon --  There's no real explanation for this one.  People just like bacon.  Click HERE (http://ducatimonsterforum.org/index.php?topic=8250.0) for more info.
  • Toaster/Toasty -- On the Ducati Monster List (the predecessor to the DML), a toaster was created.  It traveled the world, passed between forum members.  Toasty's exploits were documented in a lengthy picture thread.  Toasty attended races, events, weddings and traveled the globe.  Toasty's travels continue.  Click here (http://ducatimonsterforum.org/index.php?topic=3241.0) for more info.
  • derby -- A DMF member known for informing people when they r-e-p-o-s-t.  The board software auto-filter replaces the world "r-e-p-o-s-t" with "derby."  The real derby can be found here (http://ducatimonsterforum.org/index.php?action=profile;u=28).


The following list is for commonly used acronyms on the DML, many of which are motorcycle or Ducati or DMF-specific .  It is not supposed to be an exhaustive list of all commonly used internet acronyms.  

AFAIK  --  As far as I know
AMA  --  American Motoryclist Association.  AMA generally refers to AMA superbike racing (the US pro series) rather than the organization.  
ATGATT  --  All the gear, all the time
BOMB  --  Bike of the Moment, Baby.  The featured bike on the main forum page which changes periodically.
DIMBY -- Ducatis in My Back Yard.  A gathering of DMFers in ducpainter's back yard.  
DMF  --  Ducati Monster Forum
DML  --  The Ducati Monster List, the forum to which many belonged before it was taken over by Corporate overloads.  The DML was preceded by the 'real' Ducati Monster List, which is an email list of Ducati Monster enthusiasts.  The email list is still in existence.
DNA  --  Ducati North America.
DOC  --  Ducati owner's club.  There are many different DOCs on the DMF.  
DP  --  Ducati Perfomance.  Official Ducati aftermarket accessories.
DS  --  Dual spark.  The 1000 and 1100 2 valve engine in the M1000 and s2r1000, Hypermotard, Sport Classics and Multistrada.  Also found in some Bimotas (whoohoo!)
DucSea  --  Ducati Seattle.  A DMF sponsor.
FAQ  --  Frequently asked question
FHE  --  First hand experience
FS or F/S  --  For Sale
FTW  --  For the win or "F-u-c-k" the world
FWIW  --  For what it's worth
GF  --   Girlfriend
ie  --  It's Italian.  It means fuel injected, like a Monster 620i.e.
IIRC -- If I remember correctly
IMO  --  In my opinion
IMHO  --  In my honest/humble opinion
MW  --  Motowheels.  A DMF sponsor.
NMC  --  No Monster Content
NFW  --  No f'n way
NSFW  --  Not Safe For Work.  It's  warning that a link or post has naughty or graphic stuff in it.  
OP  --  Original posters
OTD  --  Out the door price.  The price you actually pay when they include fees and everything.
OTOH  --  On the other hand.
SBK  --  Superbike.  Generally it refers to a Ducati Superbike (e.g., 916 or 1098 or any of the others).  
SO  --  Significant other (spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, whatever)
TC  --  Traction control
TOB  --  The Other/Old Board.  Refers to the DML.  
TOSAT  --  The "Official" Say Anything Thread
VS  --  Vertical Scope, the corporate overlords who bought the DML

WSBK  --  World Superbike
WTB  --  Want oo buy

Yer "Derby" explanation doesn't make any sense unless you spell out that it means "r-e-p-o-s-t"  ;)

Shouldn't that just be DIMB then? It would work-I'm told us DMF'ers are a DIMB bunch.
