    Acronym Impaired

    Is there a good place to locate Forum acronyms (MP3car.com and/or General)? It seems that acronyms are the cornerstone of modern communications. Unfortunately I am an acronym retard. I would really hate to miss valuable information in a post because of acronym retardation. Context clues usually help but this is not always the case. PLEASE HELP!

Most cannot be found on AF.com I really want to know if maybe someone has developed a list of mp3car.com type acronyms. Probably not but it never hurts to ask (So they say)

    I also hate asking, especially if it appears that everyone else in the world already knows what something means.

    Just remember that is your friend.

    Anyway, you should be reasonably safe posting the requested acronyms in the Newbie section.
