    See Esther's post below, which came through the list as blank.  I
don't know why this happens sometimes, and not others, even though we've
tried to figure it out.  One thing we do know is that if you are careful
to choose "text" as your sending format, or "text and HTML," instead of
just "HTML," your post will almost certainly go through (unless it
contains an attachment, which you're not supposed to do).

I agree that we need to be clear about what acronyms mean.  When faced
with uncertainty on reading this message, I found that AGW can mean _a
lot _of different things, adding to my confusion, too:


So, if one uses an acronym, please spell it out the first time it is
used and put the acronym in parentheses following the spelling of it, as
is required in professional publications.  Thank you!
