With the exception of LHS, these acronyms as well as emoticons (smileys) have nothing to do with the hobby. They have been around as long as the internet and IRC chats have existed. FWIW (for what it's worth) the acronym IMHO is really "in my humble opinion".

Here are a couple of glossaries to get you started.
