    A glossary of common acronyms on these sites would be helpful.

    This has been mentioned previously. I searched and found a few. In which particularly are you interested?

    I ANAL = I Am Not A Lawyer

    Acronymic abbreviations are a holdover from the days of manuscript and manual keyboards in which each key stroke represented significant marginal effort. Now-a-days, on computers, simple scripts can replace an abbreviation with its written out version. We should eschew imprecise writing.

    Here is a previous 3 page thread in which most common acronyms on the forum are defined:
    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum65/13598.html

    That is probably one of the few threads that would be reasonably resurrected from time to time for newbies since it is not stickied.

    Thanks Doug. IMO is one. There are others but none leaps to mind.

    IMO, bald opinion is probably in violation of OCDO Rule 7

    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum1/1.html
    7) If you state a rule of law, it is incumbent upon you to try to cite, as best you can, to authority. Citing to authority, using links when available, is what makes OCDO so successful. An authority is a published source of law that can back your claim up - statute, ordinance, court case, newspaper article covering a legal issue, etc.
