At the risk of sounding like my mind is in the gutter, I have been slightly taken aback by the acronym "DCK". For example, "should I terminate this DCK?" LOL! Maybe we should do away with this one! hehe!

That's the first thing that comes to mind when I start trying to decipher some of these acronyms.

Some of them are pretty self explanatory in the context, but some of them are waaaaaay out there.
