That, or the first two-thirds of the abbreviation
'NPC': 'Non-Player Character' :).
Actually, I've never seen or used 'NP' to mean 'no
problem'; perhaps I don't interact enough online to
have picked up on all these little abbreviations. I
just learned that <3 means 'heart'. At first, I
thought it was a person reading a newspaper on the
toilet :D. I mean, doesn't it look like a guy on the
toilet reading a newspaper?
