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.
