Default Re: GURPS Forum Abbreviations: help the newbies?

What if, in my opinion - I don't like acronyms?

Do you guys how difficult it is for some of us reading these things for the first.
The phrase "AFAIK" - reads like somneting the "Aflac Duck" might say when it had a cold - if you didn't know it was an acronym.

OR try "LMAO" - first time I saw that years ago, My mind's voice pronounced it as "Luh May-Oh" - and I had no idea what it meant.

Tough enough with STAR TREK fans disagreeing if ST:TOS should refer to "The original series" or "The Old Show".

Then again, your kellicamage may vary,
