Response to SlogginThroughIt (Reply #77)

82. Oh, I don't think it is useless

I accept that to a certain degree, acronyms will forever be with us and I can live with that. However, people can be taught to communicate clearly, especially if others let them know that their excessive and often obscure acronyms are ridiculous and sometimes even insulting.

Meanwhile, they may be common vernacular for some, but certainly not all. The reason why more people don't complain is because they often think they are the only ones who don't have a clue what the writer is saying, while other people are scratching their heads and trying to decide WHICH definition on Google is the right one. When I've brought it up on Facebook, I found that most people agreed with me.
