I’m really fed up trying to read articles, comments, posts, texts etc. etc. which are littered with initials. IMO, POTUS, LOL, DM, LB, and so on and so forth ad infinitum. What is it all about ? Why is it necessary ? The ones I’ve noted above are ones that spring to mind and I can’t be arsed trying to remember any more. I’m sure you know what I’m on about. Is it just me ? Is it my age ? Is it my education ? I can cope with and accept long-established ones such as RIP, EU, USA, NATO, LGBT because they are long-established and immediately understood and accepted. But to be constantly assaulted left, right and center is painful and unnecessarily annoying.
