Its not Sailor Speak.... its Forum Speak... its when a lot of us have nothing better to do than sit at our laptops in Cruisers Forum... but we also are too busy/lazy to type "Point of View"... so it goes to POV... In My Honest Opinion... IMHO and so forth...
Very popular with office types who worry about the CEO and MD a lot...
not to mention "Whens the tea lady coming round..." WTTLCR...

My long-time girlfriend sometimes refers to me as "TGFM" (The Guy From Martinez) and "MVMH" (Most Valuable Manure Hauler).
