FOAFing - To FOAF (also FoaFing - to FoaF)
FOAFing is a term developed by PLOWEDsters over the past couple
of years that has a wide range of inferred meaning. FoaF is an acronym for
Friend of a Friend and the nickname of one of the PLOWEDsters from LA. FoaF
is one of the more intense malt collectors in PLOWED and is expert in finding
rare single malts to augment his collection. Hence the term FOAFing or to
FOAF has developed to describe the practice of searching through liquor stores
to find rare gems, especially at excellent prices, and buying them before anyone
else does. We then let our friends in malt know about our good luck FOAFing bottles of rare whisky that most will probably never
own - while we usually share some with them...
We recently rehashed the origin of the
term via email - here's a link to the full story of the "origin of FOAFing"
The use of this term has recently begun to be applied to the
search and acquisition of almost any rare item - wine, cars, antiques, etc.
Look for this PLOWED term to be added to a dictionary near you soon. I use
the all caps FOAF spelling while others prefer the original FoaF version -
FOAF - the other 4-letter "F word"
