Not a dumb question.  TPTB is just a fan abbreviation for "The Powers That Be", the writing and production team of Lost, and in this case, The Lost Experience.  I tried not to use the abbreviation in the Essentials and main areas, but you may have seen this thrown around in the forum area.

Here's a glossary and list of words & their definitions you may in the forums:
