I don't see that the Statalist FAQ is an appropriate place to store
standard or generic email or internet stuff. That seems (already) a
standard reaction to this sub-thread. Without spelling it out, we have
to assume -- even if it's optimistic -- that members are people who know
about (e.g.) Google, Wikipedia and (dare I say it) how to use standard
printed reference works.

"Read the Friendly Manual"  (plus variations on the "F" word); "For what

I don't think abbreviations is worth mentioning in the FAQ.  These seem
to be general email or internet abbreviations.

Just out of curiosity: What do "RTFM" and "FWIW" stand for? Should we
have a 
repository of "frequently used abbreviations" in the list FAQ?
