EDMW Glossary

A list of the unique (or weird ) acronyms and lingo used by EDMWers.

Warning : Usage outside of EDMW will probably make you sound like a moron and kena ridicule jialak jialak...


+1 : +1 Post Count. Serves no purpose other than to increase one's post count. (see also WOB)
Can also be used favourably as a "bump" or "up" to keep the thread active.

10 Char : 10 Characters. Used in short replies to overcome the "at least 10 characters" message length limit imposed by forum.

66.6% : Refers to the majority of Singaporeans who voted for PAP.
Usually used sarcastically when the government implements some undesirable policies.
eg. 66.6%, are you happy now that you have to pay extra 2% GST?
Origin : During the 2006 election, PAP won with a 66.6% vote. This number probably got the attention of people due to 666 being the number of the devil.
