    But thats the limit of I’ll be back….. for me atleast.. For some people i’ll be back in a sec is like 10 sec limit… But i dont really care about that shit! :)

    I personally use BRB as a way to tell them I’m going to be tending to something else on my computer, so basically that I’m ignoring them as something else has taken priority. AFK is when I go to get something or leave. Times don’t really matter, as I don’t know how long certain things will last.

    I use brb more, simply because the people I interact with use brb more than afk. However, I used to use afk more. I don’t think it really matters. I think that this wasn’t a waste of time and I’ll definitely be reading more on this site.

    I allways thought of AFK as beeing in the vicinity of the computer, but not paying attention to it; if someone sends u a message you’ll probably notice it within a quarter of an hour, chances are u set the speakers a little higher so u hear the beeping notification from the garden and will reply immediately, u just arent available for a lenghty chat.
    BRB also means a time span of more or less half an hour.

    Ur wondering is flawed in the point that both BRB and AFK represent short intervals, whatever happened to simply using “gone” and “away”?
