I notice postings often use abbreviations. Fine if you know what they are but job titles can vary so any chance someone can include a commonly used list of usual suspects? TTFN and TIA

Shame that JTB`s post was cut. Understand the reason. But I thought that it was quite witty.

But the post that followed it made a bigger deal of the `abbreviation` concerned, give an inch and see what happens, that post was deleted.

The post I deleted used the first letters of 3 days of the week to form a well known expletive, usually used on-line/text messaging. (not Monday, not Tuesday Saturday or Sunday)
