My thought process is a little different. I base the decision on whether to take the time to do the research on how eager I am to understand the post in question, not on my assessment of how much effort the poster put into his/her post. Another factor in favor of learning the abbreviation/acronym is that once learned, I will then instantly know what it means the next time I see it.

The power of learning!
