Most recognisable acronym

Postby LE4dGOLEM » Sat Aug 23, 2008 6:11 pm UTC

The goal is to lose the least points. You post an acronym that has not been posted before. If the poster after you does not recognise the acronym, you lose a point. No obvious dumbing to sab people, and double posting won't help anyway because it's not the next poster, just the next post then. Which is dumb.

because et is a whole word. I thought you had to have each letter standing for another word for it to count as an acronym but on second thoughts maybe not...
