It is difficult sometimes in reading comments in the members' forums to understand what some of the acronyms used, mean.
Could we please have the phrase first spelt out in full and the acronym reserved for subsequent use?
This is the procedure normally followed in (at least) the British national press.
Let's not get like the French press in this, where you can often read something like, "The CGRU has not accepted the decision of MNAG members to strike at the GS building in....", leaving people like me, who have dropped in on the conversation, as it were, none the wiser.

Point taken. We'll try to remember to spell things out!
