please stop

    Some people active on the list have asked for definitions of acronyms in each
    post. Others (including myself) feel that that's unrealistic. I have suggested & am
    trying to implement a compromise on this, making available a list of acronyms common on,
    & fairly distinctive of, the asa list.

            Last night I posted a 1st draft of this list in a message with subject line
    "list of acronyms" & asked for additions. If you have any that you think need to be
    added to this, please let me know. I hope to be able to have a "final" version to send
    to Terry in a few days, so that it can be made available to new members. At the same
    time I'll post it to the list.

            I put "final" in quotes because all languages change. Modifications can be made
    to this list in the future.

            Now may I ask folks to please stop arguing about the subject? The solution is
    imperfect, like all compromises. But it is, I think, workable. & I see little to be
    gained by further debate.
