When Paul was new to the Internet he thought LOL meant "lots of love" and he was puzzled by the forwardness of total strangers!

What's the towing rating of that truck according to SAE J2807?

I agree - context is very important. I generally open topics in this forum from the Recent Discussions list, so I typically don't notice the sub-forum, and based on the title "television" wouldn't have been surprising. On the other hand, that link certainly makes the intent clear. Personal interests are part of context, too: I assumed "tow vehicle" because that's what I'm more interested in discussing.

Really, is it not worth the 1/2 second to type the full name?
That's why I try to always call my truck the Tug
