IMO, there were a few problems with the name abbreviations. Firstly, the sheer number in one post. At first glance, it is definitely not easy to read. Secondly, the link provided was not in English and as I have mentioned very recently, not all forum members are bilingual. Thirdly, calling a forum member who has asked for clarification a 'spoiled brat' raises some eyebrows in terms of forum etiquette. IMO, as Justin says, if the name is written in full and then the abbreviations, it is pretty clear. Just to point out, Chinese names in the romanised form have got to be the shortest amongst the world anyway.
