Would it be a good idea when posting, if people spelt out their commonly abbreviated words when they first use them? Cos not all of us know what each other's abbreviations relating to them, mean.
Example:- I personally don't know what ABOS is, so don't really understand what's going on.
After the first time in your postings, of spelling it out in full, it would be easier for us to understand and if we forget, then we can just scroll up to your first post to refresh our memories.

If Martians ever land and read all our abbreviations would they think it was hieroglyphics,or just that we are a species too idle to write words properly. Image Image
