    I think the rest of the Portal understands what the thread is trying to accomplish. It's just to be helpful for members to understand some post. So, some abbreviations are listed. Not a big deal. Sorry that the title and content is not up to your "standards".

    Makes no difference to me at all. But they are abbreviations not acronyms, save a few.
    Looks like you take things personally. Call them whatever you want, I'll say no more.
