Abbreviations are getting my GOAT!

Simply this: I appreciate this site IMMENSELY !!!... But we now seem to live in an "ABBREVIATED' age... Yet not everyone who reads this site knows what every abbreviation used in Questions means... I think most readers who do not know the used Abbreviation, will just not bother to read further or react to it.!
"Aging-Care" -personnel: Could you please have a permanent request printed on your site for "questioners" to have the courtesy to fully write out the word, the 1st time it is used, then put the Abbreviation in parenthesis next to the word. Thereafter the meaning of the abbreviation is known to the reader throughout the rest of the text. ...
This has become "courtesy protocol" in business correspondence and here it should be required, because your readers live in such a large country that terminology and names can be different in Alaska, compared to the same thing in Texas....... Your Attention to this matter would surely be appreciated by many readers, as your subject matter discussed here is becoming ever more important and the help you offer is needed by many elderly
I am now asking for an explanation for " APS " - it is not found in Google either.... Thank you for listening ! DHilBe.

Looking at T-shirts with sayings on them, there is this abbreviation:
W.T.F.
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says W.T.F.

corinna, you are not alone. I prefer to use a keyboard, too.

I've almost given up trying to TEXT, and I wind up with letters from the rows above or below the letter I want to use. I could take me 10 minutes to type out one sentence due to going back to correct wrong letters, etc. Or I just give up.

Now my TEXT is just one word... yes, no, ok.

Thank you all for taking the time to write answers to this question. It has been "getting my goat" ever since I started following this site. ;-) I'd like to know how many people who follow this site "TEXT". I can type 98 words per minute (WPM) on a keyboard, but that is done with all fingers, I just can't get the hang of "typing" with my thumbs at my ripe old age. Thus I don't know all the acronyms. THANK YOU AGAIN!
