FFB: (Frum From Birth)

FFBWL: Frum From Birth With Lapses- "My yeshiva had the best weed..."

FFBOOH: Frum From Birth Out Of Habit

BT: Ba'al Teshuva

IBT: Integrated Ba'al Teshuva- "You're a Ba'al Teshuva?!"

NIBT: Non-Integrated Ba'al Teshuva- Q: "Can I help you find the pages during the service?" A: "I'm okay, thanks."

Nice post!
