I think she (?) means acronyms, but I'm not sure. Don't we have a common internet acronym list somewhere?

If you click on the link to the site FAQ (near the top of every page, between User CP and Members List), you'll find I've added a set of the most commonly used abbreviations, culled from the lovely link Hans posted.

In time I think I'll add a list of McCaffrey-specific abbreviations you're likely to see around here (such as TWD = The White Dragon and WW = Weyrwoman).
