Are you referring to this?

In that case, it's just an abbreviation of OftenBen's name.

Otherwise, I have no idea, and I've been here quite awhile.

Ahhh.. I seemed to have come across it on a few posts and hadn't noticed what the original posters username was. I guess OftenBen must be a more prominent figure around here then? Haha. In seeing OP quite frequently used on Reddit and other forums, I just assumed it meant something similar.

Thanks. I can go back to sleeping easy again. :)

In similar vein, kb stands for the user kleinbl00, TNG for thenewgreen and mk...for mk.

Didn't we agree on 'mkay for mk?

I rarely "lol" these days, which is sad. But I totally did just now. Thanks

Some of us find our hackles raised by people who refer to others as "OP."

We have names, dammit.

I agree. I've never actually used OP before, just seen it a lot and mistook OB to be something similar.
