Abbreviations can cause miscommunications !

This is why, my understanding is, we are all asked not to abbreviate when
sending messages on the PBS email org....

Imagine how hard it must be for international viewers who don't have
English as a first language, to follow some stories... Thay are
sometimes left with substantial gaps in a conversation !

I grew up speaking english & sometimes i have no idea what some of you are
talking about, I am sure this is more common than people realise.... With
some people something as simple as  ( I'm or don't ) is even difficult at
first, rather than ( I am or do not )...

Hope that makes sense !
