Keep in mind there are only 17,576 possible TLAs. They get repetitive and confusing.

NASA was one of the worst for overloading TLAs and you had to track context to make sense of the conversation.

Well, glad to see all the inputs, I was trying to keeping it simple for the day to day topics in the forums. I could've used Google to list it. Some of the acronyms here are seldom used in the day to day topics.

Although I appreciate the input, wasn't what was expecting.
