Commonly used DVC Forum Abbreviations and Acronyms

Since there have been a number questions regarding the acronyms and other abbreviations used frequently on our DVC Boards, there may be some value in creating our own list.

There is also a list of common abbreviations already on the DIS which is fairly comprehensive. So be sure to check there also for others not on this list.

If there are other acronyms commonly used on the DVC Boards which should be added to this list, please let me know and I'll update this list.
