From hereon henceforth, it shall be considered poor writing style on Daily Kos to introduce a three letter acronym (TLA) or even a four letter acronym (FLA) without proper full explanation of your abbreviation.
Really, it's just about productivity. If you, the author, can spell it out for us, your hundreds of readers yearning and thirsting for your opinions will not have to look it up at the urban dictionary or whatever. You could literally save us from spending hundreds of minutes wondering WTF (what the fuck) you are talking about, and likewise save us collectively all the time searching the interwebs for what you mean, and context switching back to your diary.
What, may I ask, do you think will happen if we encounter hilarious pictures of grumpy cat when we go looking up your TLAs? Or perhaps those angry birds start chirping at us again? Or you find some delicious pie? Who knows, perhaps we will even fall prey to competitors or worse, we will accidentally be swayed by the impressive logic of the NRA/Red State folks (OK, ha ha, that's a joke).
Worst of all, when you don't explain your TLAs, your diary is exclusionary. Your readers, aloof. So, don't be a TLA dropper.
Ta ta for now (TTFN)
