What does AFAICS stand for?

As far as I can see

In work emails, online chat, and social media posts, AFAICS means "as far as I can see." Using this acronym is the same as saying "to the best of my knowledge" or "given the information I have."

AFAICS usually prefaces an opinion that a co-worker, friend, or social media user thinks is correct but is not certain of. Prefacing their opinion with AFAICS provides the person some wiggle room, in which they can adjust their belief after receiving additional information.
