Hey OP (see what I did there?), I scanned back through some of your previous posts and you used the following acronyms:
psi
IBU
CO2
BIAB
PPM
IPA

So either start saying "pounds per square inch," "International Bitterness Units," "carbon dioxide," "brew in a bag," "parts per million," and "India Pale Ale" or risk being labeled a hypocrite.

Note, I only looked at the first page of results on your posts, if I had time to go farther I think I probably could have found more.

Im guessing the OP hasnt spent a lot of time on message boards.
This is the most civil, helpful, and knowledgeable internet community Ive ever seen.
Even if I agreed with the OP, which I dont, I wouldnt be so rude as to tell folks who are trying to help me how to do so.
Its just disrespectful. If you dont care for the way someone chooses to communicate with you just skip over it.
If you dont care for the way an entire community chooses to communicate maybe you should just not be there.

That's why, when I see the girly man acronym "SWMBO", I usually skip the thread or post all together.
