Abbreviations and acronyms
We all use various abbreviations in communicating with colleagues; however these acronyms are not universal. In order to facilitate communication and maximize the usefulness of this forum, I would like to suggest we refrain from using them in our postings. After all, how many people know what CTE, COF, SRP, MDEA, etc mean? We are not all native English speakers, and even for those of us who are, an unknown abbreviation makes it impossible to offer assistance to our colleagues on the forum.

Totally agree

It has been mention a few times before Rolleyes but worth repeating.

Abbreviations are fine when you are repeating a lengthy word or phrase, but in first instance (within a thread) please explain the abbreviation.
