    All these abbreviations can be sumarised as "RTFM".
    That's 'read the - manual'!

    I'm the same way! I have a degree in English, so I just can't bring myself to abbreviate anything. It doesn't bother me when other people do it, but I just can't.

    Intuition? Sometimes it doesn't work for me) especially if it concerns some official abbreviations.
  • 09-28-2012, 02:59 AM
    ios ftw
    I rarely use abbreviations because I mainly talk to people on Skype but when I'm in a big hurry I tend to use short words and abbreviations so this topic really comes in handy for me.
  • 09-25-2012, 04:20 PM
    I Really don't like abreviations.. They annoy me a bit and it is sometimes hard to read
