Been binge reading on The Workplace questions and some people comment the word IANAL and then append their comment. What does that mean?
It's Internet slang for I am not a lawyer.
(Well, actually, it was Usenet and ARPANet slang before it was Internet slang.)
To those who know it's a succinct term, but many people do not know, so I encourage people not to rely on slang and acronyms like this. It's better to spell it out.
I am about to dispense legal advice, although I should know better, and you should not rely on what I am about to say.
I am not a lawyer, but I play one on TV.
I am not a lawyer, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
