I am relatively new to Stack Exchange. I have started to frequent the Math and Programming (stackoverflow.com) forums. I have been active in other similar forums in the past. Those forums strongly encouraged against using texting-style abbreviations such as single letters for words. What is the general policy in that regards here?
p.s. My apologies if this has been discussed before. The list of "Similar Questions" to the right does not appear to have a thread that looks like this question. If there is one somewhere, please post a link.
