    bump means to move a thread back to the top. It is essentially making a post to "bump" a thread up to where more people will see it. People will do this if a thread is dying or has died and wants people to respond to it.

    lol means "laughing out loud." This can take many forms such as the aforementioned "lol" or "LOL" for a more hearty laugh. For those under 20 there is also the ever popular "LOLOLOLOL" which usually indicates retardedness.

    ditto basically means "same goes for me"

    Hope this helps. :)
