I am terrible at acrostics what does this mead?

RDWHAHB?

Any other widely used acrostics that you could identify would be helpful too.

It's not an acrostic- it's an acronym!

I believe we have a thread called, "abbreviations" or something where all the abbreviations are located. RDWHAHB comes from Charlie Papazian.

See if you can find it, or I can try to find a link!

I bet you can find it before I can find a link, though.
