I was just reading the "tips" post and found myself thinking about the use of acronyms. Decided to post here rather than in "main" section since mine is a general comment for any kind of acronym or abbreviation, not just those associated with quilting. I guess the intent is to save time in typing and/or to add a bit of cleverness. There are also cases where the same acro. is used for completely unrelated words. I find that there seem to be so so many that I often end up having to puzzle over them and maybe ask what they mean or refer to a site defining them for interpretation in the appropriate context. If I don't (and I often don't have time), I miss some of the content of the post. Which of course, negates the purpose of using them.
