Occasionally, I pass over a question merely because I don't understand an abbreviation or acronym. I wonder if the instructions should encourage the definition of these things in the body of the question.
Sometimes acronyms are well known, QFT and SHM are examples. Others are less well known, or perhaps known to people in particular geographic regions, or graduates of certain schools. An example I saw recently is "SM". Even after reading the question and having some understanding that I was out of my league on that one (and quickly eliminating "Statistical Mechanics"), I couldn't figure out SM. Finally Standard Model came to mind, and I'm guessing that that's the correct meaning. Even if that's the correct meaning, it's still certainly the first time I've ever seen that abbreviation. Another recent example is "IVP", for which I fully understood the question but still don't understand the abbreviation. And some things are known by different names: KVL to some is the loop rule to others.
And then there is the case where the abbreviation is well-known to those practiced in the art, in which case it doesn't matter at all if I don't understand the question. In any event, in all the above cases, I'm annoyed that the original poster (OP) couldn't be bothered to be more clear.
Is this worth a mention in the help/instructions?
