Re: Fw: Re: abbreviations

From:Amos Brooks

    I do hope no one thought I was trying to be rude. I was only trying to
make a point. Often people are just trying to get their point across and
sometimes don't even know they used an abbreviation. I know I am guilty of
this. I just didn't see the point of getting upset about it. If you want to
know ... ask.
    I would also like to mention that the analogy someone mentioned about
articles always spelling it out is a little inaccurate since the histonet is
not a magazine or book. This is an open forum and slips like this happen.

BTW: (by the way) Attachments are also a Nettiquette faux paw.
