Is there a GPG training course for the meaning of acronyms used here ? Have just about worked out COYB and IMO or it’s more common brother IMHO (as Thomas says we must all be H!). But IIRC escapes me, and all those Emojis are surely for the younger lot …
Also they mainly seem to be 4 letter acronyms. As someone who worked in the NHS, am only trained to cope with the 3 letter version !

Pedant alert. Some of these are more correctly initialisms rather than acronyms.
Thank you for your UPI :) *

Good communication should be entirely clear to all the intended audience, young/old, literate/not so literate. I shan't include others otherwise I'll be 'woked.' The use of acronyms should be avoided when communicating with an unknown or broad audience. COYB's!
