Also, I do not have the time to wait 15 minutes just to know what an abbreviation stands for, due to the fact that I have important things to work on. If you know what is now, then just tell it to someone who does not know. But since I have been already told, forget it.

Honestly, it was a jab towards lazy people in general, but since you want to make it all about you…
No, I read it. Since your connection was good enough to post a question on the forum, it was obviously good enough to type in “DNF acronym” into google and return “About 71,400 results (0.51 seconds)” Of those results, the first one says, without even needing to click on the link, “Acronym in the sports world for “Did Not Finish”…”
So you were being lazy. You can’t blame a slow connection when you obviously have a good enough connection to post in a forum since forums have a weaker inferior hardware compared to the Google Search engine.
Also, to break it down even further on how you can’t blame a slow connection…
It takes two web requests get search results. One request to get to google.com or the search engine of your choice, and one to make the request to the search engine to generate the results. So two requests/pages…
To get your answer on the forum, it takes at least 3 or more requests. One to generate the page where you type in the “What does DNF stand for?” question. Then one more when you click the “Post” button. Then you have to at least wait for someone to look at the question and then respond, which means you’ll have to refresh your page, which is another request. If someone didn’t respond, then you’ll have to add another request on each time until you get your answer.
So you’ve used more of your connection to sit here and ask what DNF stood for rather than just go look it up yourself. Tell me another reason why you couldn’t just google it and I’ll still point out why you were lazy.
