We’re receiving an increasing number of texts and e-mails with more and more inscrutable abbreviations.

We’re seeing some “private codes” being used in written discourse that send us fleeing to the Acronym Dictionary. What abbreviations have you encountered lately that have you scratching your head? If acronyms are supposed to be shorthand communication, shouldn’t they shorthand communication rather than not communicate at all?
