I agree with you waynos, this puts responsibility on the poster, and as was remarked if you dont know then ask. I think Willard's suggestion of
using the standard accepted use of acronyms in an article is the way to go. And thankyou Canada_EH for starting the ball rolling and leading by
example. It is probably true that as suggested we dont need to explain the most widely known acronyms, afterall who wants to type Advanced Medium
range Air to Air Missile in every post unless asked!! .. er thats AMRAAM guys
Err just had a thought guys. Maybe what we need is not a list of acronyms and terms, but a new comers guide/posters guide, to posting and etiquette.
This could be locked in the "Read this before posting" thread. This would cut down on the number of "how to" instructional threads. Perhaps a mass
U2U could be sent asking people to familiarize themselves with these instructions?
