    "While abbreviations typically exclude the initials of short function words (such as "and", "or", "of", or "to"), they are sometimes included in acronyms to make them pronounceable. Sometimes the letters representing these words are written in lower case, such as in the cases of TfL (Transport for London) and LotR (Lord of the Rings). This usually occurs when the acronym represents a multi-word proper noun."

    ABsolutely not. There is no rule of English grammar that says you can omit the word for. Why should you want to, anyway, unless you're trying to create an acronym. Old People for Sex -- OPS.
