Rivets & Acronyms???

Hi All,
New to the forums and new owner;
A few days ago I was listed as New Member, now I see Im listed as 1 Rivet.
What is the meaning of 1 rivet member, 2 rivet, etc?
Also, is there a list of the acronyms used in this forum?
Items like SOB, VAT, FOD.
I looked in the FAQ (I know that one) but didnt find anything.
Thanks,
Denny

Here is a link to a thread on commonly used acronyms, have fun...

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...yms-85715.html

I didn't see FOD in the TLA (three letter acronym) lists in the above referenced thread.

FOD = Friends Of Dorothy

By the way, welcome to the forum!

The more posts you make, the more rivets you get.

SOB - square ordinary box, some other brand, same old box, ...

VAT is typically Value Added Tax - important for our friends in the UK and
Eurozone. Not sure about Canada (don't remember).

FOD is Friends of Dorothy - LGBT friendly. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friend_of_Dorothy
