There needs to be a thread with explanations of all of these abbreviations and such. I finally figured out that a sling was short for spider ling. Still not sure what a pokie is though.:?

I wrote and submitted an article defining these acronyms, abbreviations, as well as taxonomical words, and 'more scientific' terms.

It has not been published yet.
