Yes, please. I strongly second Doug Fenner´s plea to define acronyms on
coral list! Sometimes the messages are unintelligible.
(Thanks Doug, I thought I was the only one who found undefined acronyms so

Asunto: [Coral-List] please define acronyms

Hi everybody,
    Could people please define their acronyms in their messages?  These
messages go out all over the world to people of many different countries,
many of whom do not have English as their native language, many of whom do
not work in your area of science or in your government, and so many of us
will not know what your acronyms are.  Please be merciful to us, and define
the acronyms.  Many thanks!
