You could also post some song names abbreviations which are used often.

It would be also very useful to post the acronyms used in boards such as IMO, IMHO, ROFL, etc.

Good one, very informative, especially like you said for those who are either new to DT or bad at puzzles/problem solving. lol.

But, for what it's worth, they aren't acronyms they are initialisms. Acronyms form a word, like PADI, SWAT, NATO, PETA, etc.

Good job on the list.
