IIRC, it means "if I remember correctly".

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.

From the American Heritage Dictionary: Used in written texts to indicate that a surprising or paradoxical word, phrase, or fact is not a mistake and is to be read as it stands.

I've always thought that it also meant when used in quotation that the author knows there is a spelling/grammar mistake but is reproducing the quote exactly as it appeared, hence the use of 'sic'.

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. Posted Image

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"

Actually -

Sic-
latin:"sic" which means (thus).

Uses of Latin Abbreviations

As in, "sic transit gloria mundi" - thus passes the glory of the world.
