    Arrow Frequently used acronyms

    Hello Everyone,

    I remember a thread where the participants discussed the appropriateness of using acronyms in the forum's chats. I think most of us agreed acronyms replacing common phrases and expression should be accepted as a fact of life, even though careful users of English would certainly try to avoid extensive usage of acronyms, as they may be ambiguous or even incomprehensible to less experienced members.

    So here's a good reference site:

    I hope this will help those of us frequently puzzled by all the BTW, IMHO, AFAIK etc. stuff.

    Regards,

    Tee Kay
