    I've been posting here for a few years, and find that you really have to keep up on abbreviations to be able to understand what's being discussed sometimes. I think it should be a rule that if you are going to refer to something and abbreviate it throughout your post, you should have to spell it out at least once the first time it's mentioned. What do you folks think? This would help unfamiliar folks navigate through threads and understand better. ;)

    winterlord, first, welcome to Wilders! FYI: Acronym Finder.

    twl845, that's a good suggestion and I hope that our long time Members keep it in mind, for the sake of those who just joined Wilders!
