C'mon, this was surely a joke, right? The OP can't seriously have thought to come onto a message board and instruct the entire membership on the proper way to post... right?

The post referencing CO2, IBU, etc was gold. This was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the original post. Was the true intention that nobody post acronyms that the OP was not familiar with? Perhaps Tex would kindly provide us all with a list of acceptible acronyms?

Maybe we should set up an acronym approval committee (AAC).

Okay, I am getting silly, now.

It's worth distinguishing between "jargon" acronyms (BIAB, IBU, AG, etc.) and "txtspk" acronyms (OMG, etc.). The former do more than just reduce the number of characters you have to type, they have specific technical meanings. As a result, they make your post easier to understand (to someone versed in the jargon) quickly.

The latter are, I guess, laziness at some level. However, this is a message board. It's informal. I've personally been using various forms of those acronyms for two decades, so you might as well be bitching about CBers talking in 10-codes. It's part of the culture. You don't just storm in and demand that people drop their habits because you, as a n00b, don't understand them.

STFU or GTFO.

I get that part of it to some degree, but the post that set him off (looking at his last post before starting this thread) was someone referencing BDSA (Belgian Dark Strong Ale), which granted is less used than IPA, but the usage is identical.
