I get your point,
people cannot be expected to explain everything.
If people were to err on the side of caution,
expand acronyms the first
time you use them if they are not well know and repeated several times in
a mail and perhaps also explain new or obscure terms.

I know this is not a list for newbies and I am not asking for anyone to
hold my hand or anything but making things a little bit easier wont hurt
