Acronyms Anonymous - forming a new chapter

It's occurred to me that there has been an outbreak of Acronymia recently here in the forums and it's been spreading unchecked.  Every other post seems to introduce new and unnecessary acronyms to our world.  If this keeps up I doubt that anyone will understand what we are talking about anymore.  So I think it is time for an intervention.  For reasons that I am quite sure will not surprise you, I cannot force anyone to stop using acronyms.  It must be a voluntary admission on your part that you have a problem, otherwise your recovery chances are not so good.

Now, if you suspect that you might have contracted this terrible disease, there is a fairly simple test.  Try to post without using or referring to any acronyms.  If you can make 3 posts without using any acronyms, then you could possibly be a social user of acronyms. Congratulations dear poster, and keep on posting please, we need more like you. 

If on the other hand you fail my simple test, then do not despair.  There is still hope for you.  In fact, I believe a complete recovery can be made.  Once one admits they have a problem, they are actually on the way to recovery.  Remember, together we can accomplish many things which alone might baffle us.:smileyhappy:

I'm sorry Perrie, I don't understand your question.  But I applaud the lack of acronyms.:smileywink:

For what it's worth, in my humble opinion this is a good thread.

Some acronyms have become words.  Snafu, for example.  And then there are companies that go by their initials.  BBC, AT&T, and many more.  Are those acronyms?  Is saying Charlie Foxtrot alright or should I spell it out?


Only you can decide if you suffer from acronymia or not, Charlie Foxtrot may or may not know the answer.
