I see this in various posts and have no idea what IIRC means. Anyone know?
If I recall correctly...
Enter the acronym
IIRC, it means "if I remember correctly".
"I've inquired regarding cucumbers"
If I really concentrate
When I see IIRC in a message posting, I will substitute it for one of the following:
I'll insert rational commentary
Invisible images really confound
insipid interrogatories rarely count
Insert idiotic rambling criticisms
or the obvious: "I IRC" in which the writer is proclaiming their use of Internet Relay Chat.
Yes, I have too much time on my hands.
What does (sic) stand for?
Hmmm...IIRC I think it has to do with silica.
Right I knew more or less the purpose(I thought as you do) but I've never been able to find a proper explanation as to what (sic) stands for, if it does stand for anything, or what it means. It's not even in that acronym dictionary the guy posted above
That's because (sic) is not an acronym. Go figure.
I was hoping this would be a mirror thread to the Silica thread with tons of responses like:
If I recall correctly, IIRC means "If I recall correctly"
What the f**k does "wtf" mean?
latin:"sic" which means (thus).
