    Original Poster. Sometimes used to refer to the person who created the thread.

    Or if you're old enough to remember - Ocean Pacific.

    Old? Walmart sells great cargo shorts by OP! Wearing a pair as we speak.

    Let's see how many we can come up with:

    Often Prolific
    Old People
    Off Peeing
    Or Plead
    Oft Pleasing


    anyone...?

    Sorta of a triple whammy right there, huh?:eek:

    1. You clothes shop at Walmart.
    2. You still buy OP.
    3. You're actually wearing them now!

    Take yer pick. In any case, any one of those terms - in the context of MR - is referring to the guy who starts a topic. First Poster? Number One Poster? Topic Starter Guy? I forget the actual name of what they call him :D

    That's what I though the first few times I saw that term being thrown around. Apparently it was because the thread starter in that particular thread was an idiot and the rest of the posters were calling him out as a dumb kid. So I initially thought it was slightly derogatory.

    It would be awesome if there were a prolific poster here with the name OP, effectively gutting the acronym.

    First thought came to mind:

    Orifice Penetration.

    But "Original Poster" is probably what OP really means in context of this message board.
