    perhaps this should be stickied and all acronyms posted to aid the future generations ahead.

    Or a battle of the acronyms

    Fairly sure there's already 194 of these threads.
    I am a brave man, I am a coward. I am the tiger, I am the flower.
    I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
    I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
    I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.
    Forever, more than just surviving.

    Acronym (noun)
    a word formed from the initial letters or groups of letters of words in a set phrase or series of words.

    RADAR is an acronym
    NATO is an acronym

    GAGFC is not an acronym
    CBA is not an acronym

    Pseudo-acronyms are just bastard acronyms, nothing wrong with calling them acronyms.

    True.
    But I think abbreviation/initialism would be more suitable.
