    This is an initialism. As such, it's different from abbreviations like etc. which are normally expanded when reading aloud.
    I know this is not the right section to post my question but I am unable to access the forum. It says I have been blocked. Could you help me please?
    I cannot start a new thread.

    I've moved this post to the Support Forum.

    It doesn't allow me to post the blocked thread here. I just wanted to show it to make sure it doesn't contain any words that should be blocked. Or maybe it does? I could send the text to a moderator.

    So you're still logged in and you're able to post in this section of the forum. That's a good sign. You can PM the text to me if you like.

    Re: I have been blocked from the forum.

    Those jpg filenames look odd to me- the first screenshot uses the code for a colour as its filename. I have emailed the webmaster to look into it. I hope it gets cleared up soon.
