    Why did you repost this?
    <http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.java.programmer/msg/9c72121982b29e11?as_umsgid=>

    Particularly, why did you ignore Keith Thompson's advice against
    posting such questions to the technical groups?

    - avoid 'kewl' abbreviations like 'F'Ups', the phrase is 'Follow ups'.

    I've never thought of F'Ups as 'kewl', but to please you, (shrugs) sure.

    claim *that* is a 'kewl' abbreviation are you Andrew M.? ;) ]

    The problem with abbreviations, especially on an internationally read
    group, is that the reader may not get the meaning you intended. There
    are quite a few alternative interpretations for "F'Ups", and for many
    "Follow Ups" is not near the top of the list (or even on it at all).
