Default Seriously stop using acronyms,

because its really annoying having to google it and still not be able to figure out what the heck you are talking about. How lazy do you have to be to cut 12 letters off of a sentence? Its confusing, it does not clarify or help relay information well, which is what this website is about. 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!

AFAIK you may just need to talk to SWMBO and RDWHAHB but then again YMMV

IMHO .02
