I noticed your emphasis on that phrase, and began to feel uncomfortable... and then I read Tom T.'s post and truly felt like a fool for not being able to find the darn post.

No head smack, no worries! We have ATM 1,985 registered members, plus thousands of posts by unregistered guests, and the Forum Rules have been viewed 774 times ATM, which would include our own views to review and edit it, etc. Do the math...... (ATM = At The (or This) Moment. )
I admit I don't read forum rules at most other ones that I visit, as most are pretty much the same. No spam, no nasties, etc. However, I'm going to suggest that they be in the Board Index, i. e. on the main page as soon as you come here, not just in each individual sub-forum. That would add some visibility, as by the time people get to the sub-forum they're looking for, they're ready and eager to post.
Wikipedia has a good policy that all acronyms should be spelled out the first time in any given article, after which the acronym may be used. Considering the global audience of the Net, not everyone will know acronyms that "everyone" knows. As moderators, we probably should follow the same policy; even if the OP (Original Poster ) uses the acronym, another user who reads later might not know it. I'll suggest that. Thanks for some ideas that might help to improve the forum.
