Have you considered creating a 'dictionary' or 'quick reference guide' and posting it in the FAQ section? This is kind of a variation on the Wiki links suggestion, but in addition to defining terms with acronyms, other terms more specific to BPROs could be defined (Battery and Vehicle Side Connectors, Pushnuts, etc.), then linked to their corresponding FAQ, if one is provided.
It could then serve as both a guide and FAQ index (similar to GSEric's index in the old forum).
'Protection' and 'Oppression' are synonymous.
