We started a glossary a long time ago and I think I volunteered to manage it but never did (insert embarrassed emoji here). Let me see if I can find it ....

Hmm, not coming up with anything. I'll keep looking.

Heh, solved the mystery. The glossary was at the old site. They had a huge crash a while ago and lost a lot of their archives - including, it seems the thread full of acronyms/abbreviations/commonly used terms. So it's gone forever, I guess. Jstar's list above is great, though!
