OP (whoops, already did it), I have to say... aside from the SWMBO (which I find silly... I always use the term "my wife") and RDWHAHB, this forum is usually pretty clean of acronyms and text speak (hey wut u brwin tday).

Am I missing something here?

Oh man that's funny. I couldn't believe he wrote that until it donned on me, "Automatic Teller Machine." I probably listen to too much Stern.

Wow, I expected better from you, Revvy. If this was supposed to be funny, the sarcasm does not come through very well.

Most of the time I just skip over whatever you have to say because half of the sentences contain GLFTOs (good luck finding that one), and don't make sense whatsoever! Come on! Just push the few extra buttons, its not that hard. I mean really, if you are that lazy, I hate to think of what kind of corners you cut when it comes to brewing beer. Unless its something obvious like ATM or NASA or PTSD, I really have no idea what you are talking about...
I know this topic does not have anything to do with beer in general, but I wanted to get the most bang for my buck and I put it in one of the most used categories.
Sorry to sound like an old bltch, but man I hate acronyms!
It is perhaps my background in scientific writing that makes me totally agree. Let us not forget the people that use certain letters or the first and last letter, with symbols in between, it is still vulgar language.

OMG...TBH, IMHO, Acronym use in IRC AKA Message Boards is NBD. But if it's a BFD to you, you should RDWAHAHB. After all, WYSIWYG on IRC and posts like this are SNAFU and FUBAR, yet make me LMMFAO all the same.

Snuggle time w/ SWMBO might help out when acronym use gets OOH and causes you PITA.

NRN and JMHO--- FWIW
