Just thought of a few more:
CAA
CSRF
DDOS/DOS
DMARC
DNS
IE
IDOR
iOS (not sure if this really counts)
MS-DOS
OS
SSRF
XSS

Some of these are not really well known, I think (like IDOR).
Certificate Authority Authorization
Cross Site Request Forgery
(Distributed) Denial of Service
Domain Message Authentication Reporting & Conformance
Domain Name System
Internet Explorer
Insecure Direct Object Reference
(iPhone Operating System?)
Microsoft Disk Operating System
Operating System
Server-side Request Forgery
Cross Site Scripting

Oh also AFK, BRB, and WFH :)

Away from keyboard
Be right back
Work(ing) from home

And nice search form! I think a cool next step would be to add in "Submit an acronym" if there are no results listed.

Oh, I just realized; should I be using your submit form instead?

Added (AFK), added (BRB) and added (WFH). I've been also trying to add credit to folks who submit new acronyms. I linked it to your Twitter if that's ok.

Added. Also thanks :) Your feedback has been awesome Andy!!! Keep them coming.

Feel free to use whatever channel works for you :) I've been keeping track everywhere.
