I've run across several abbreviations and have had to sit there and think or reread the sentence to figure out the context and then I can usually figure it out.  not that kwim would be that easy to figure...until you know what it means and then it is like duh!

Don't feel bad. I didn't know that one either and never thought to ask.

THANKS, Chris!  Didn't even realize that wonderful list existed.

I've wondered - forever - what FWIW meant! ('for what it's worth')

I consider the time and effort put into figuring these abbreviations out as "mental gymnastics" and believe that they are good for your brain...
