Please, can’t you reduce usage of acronyms? (or, well, explain them)

I know, I tend to use acronyms too, but seriously, seeing all blog posts and comments and sites where there are lots of acronyms to designate stuff and to gain some time, well, sometimes it makes me want to bang my head against the wall.

Particularly when it is used multiple times and it is never explained what it means. Because, obviously, everybody knows, right?

Except, well, when you are from a bit of a different background – for me, it’s because english is not my mother tongue or the language I daily use. And it’s frustrating because, ok, there is google and wikipedia, except since many people loooove 3-letters acronyms, it means many 3-letters acronyms actually can mean a lot of things. So you have to check and guess what the most probable is.

I mean, ok, I understand the need for e.g. LGBT, but when one in every three words is an acronym, it’ a bit too much, right?
