Ops - short for operations, or plural operatives.
Op - short for singular operation, or one operative.
OP - short for Original Poster, or overpowered.
OP's - possessive form of Original Poster.
Opps - remarkably common misspelling for "oops" (BRKMSN)

The Op...err...OP makes a good point
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Fussy:

Canon: a body of ecclesiastic law, and by analogy anything else that is considered "definitive". But the origin of the word is in the laws of the (Catholic) Church.

Actually, canon originally meant a list. The list in question was what books belonged in the bible. The application to law came later.

OK, fair point, but it still has nothing to do with a body of "definitive" fictional lore.

This all goes to show why you shouldn't use an acronym like OP and expect everyone to automatically know what you mean.
The correct form is to spell out the entire word, such as Operation, the first time and put the acronym in brackets afterwards if you intend to use the acronym later in the text.
For example:
I was doing an Operation (OP) tonight and....... during this OP, I .... so the OP failed.
I was playing Team Fortress Classic (TFC) and....
etc.
