BTW: Why does the main page of the "Official Website of the Toledo Police Department" contain a link to a list of "Internet Chat Acronyms" that just happens to have a bunch of four-letter words (with all but the first letter '*'-out)? :?: :shock:

There's also this line (emphasis mine): "NOTE: there are groups of chat users, especially the kids, who have developed entire new sets !! Not included here, of course." :?: So it's "okay" to link to a list of BFD, FOAD, etc. but not to a "kids" list? :?
