This should be required reading. Thanks so much for this information. I definitely need to print this out. I tend to follow my father's first rule, KISS-keep it simple stupid.

I can't believe you fellows need a two page list of TLA's, etc.  Grow up people and learn to spell.  Exclusive language excludes -- get it?? -- or was that the idea.  Big turn off.

No exclusionary thing going on Mr. Smoke. Just the language of a fraternity.

Really Maximumsmoke? What about the Three Letter Acronym you are using right now?
