You don't HAVE to have one. Just be careful about grounding yourself.

They are all capital letters when you abbrevite like that same as if you did New York.. You dont go Ny you put it at NY.

Now you learned something so you can use google now..
Do you realise what you are arguinng about. And i believe New York is abreviated to NY because it has to be capitalized due to the fact it is a noun, not becuase you are abreviating it, so your argument is not valid.

That is funny don't you remember agreeing to the rules and terms of the website, that must ring a bell. Can you use the 1st ammendment as an argument on an international website? The answer is no, there are people with many ethnic and religious backgrounds from many countries. The interent isnt american or christian.

any shorten word needs to be in caps, not just nouns.

Yes im not saying he's not right, i am saying that New York is capitalized because it's a noun which takes presidence over the abreviation (seems to me).. Im sorry, i thought it was a bad example.
