STFW

I've known the phrase "RTFM" for many years, and I've been using the phrase "TSOR" for about three years, but I had never previously encountered "STFW."

At first I thought it was a variant on "STFU" ("Shut The Fuck Up"), but from context that clearly wasn't right. (The context was ESR's How to Ask Questions the Smart Way, which I just saw for the first time even though it's apparently been around for years.) Then the document expanded the acronym: it stands for "Search The Fucking Web."

Sort of like TSOR, but blunter.
