I am publicly turning in my FPP homework assignment.
I would like to think I purposely make dumb FPP mistakes so the newer members are less intimidated to post.
However, thank you rouftop
for pointing out the obvious also everyone
who applauded him.
SLYT = WTF?

People use it as a pre-emptive warning that yeah, their entire post hinges on a video you have to watch, but hopefully they provide enough of a description and reason why you'd want to devote time to watching it to make it worthwhile
The hive-mind is exceptionally fluent in telling you what SLYT does NOT mean:
Suck Less, You Tool
It's a shortened version of SLYTPTYDHTBWUIANPS
Seven Little Yellow Taxis
Some Lasagna? Yes, Terrance.
... and on and on.
Where I went wrong:
Why YES! All four of my FPP SLYT links were in fact a series of SINGLE links to a You Tube video. I assumed it as a tag warning in lieu of allowing your browser to tell you with a mouseover. Also I am aware of the YT doublers so you can see how I might be easily confused even if I was aware of the correct acronym.
Even so, facepalm and if I am still learning, there are others like me that may appreciate my hard-learned lesson.
