Not at all. Language has rules for very specific reasons. None of it would work if it was a free for all where anything goes.

Which is why you cannot come up with your own arbitrary personal definition of the word acronym.

Not so. There's always been considerable disagreement over what constitutes a word and an abbreviation. I believe it has to have an actual word as a counterpart for it to be considered an acronym, otherwise it's an abbreviation like F.B.I. or C.I.A.. ELEX isn't a word, ergo it's an abbreviation.

Words have meanings. This is not a matter of opinion.

From Merriam Webster:

Full Definition of ACRONYM

: a word (as NATO, radar, or laser) formed from the initial letter or letters of each of the successive parts or major parts of a compound term; also : an abbreviation (as FBI) formed from initial letters : initialism

— ac·ro·nym·ic \&#716;a-kr&#601;-&#712;ni-mik\ adjective
— ac·ro·nym·i·cal·ly \-mi-k(&#601;-)l&#275;\ adverb
See acronym defined for English-language learners
See acronym defined for kids

Examples of ACRONYM

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is known by the acronym “NATO.”

About what time last night Blue? Boston experienced something very similar about midnight last night.

From around 8:00 pm to midnight. MrKawfy wasn't experiencing problems, though, and he's closer to Boston than I am.

something on your end is blocking the css from loading, specifically styles.css adblock or script block being overzealous? Aside that I have no idea... and hope someone can help you

That is about all I could say about this too. The CSS isn't loading for you, but I have no idea why it would strike you individually.

Hey, Krovven, are you posting with two different accounts by chance? There's another poster that has a 'w' instead of 'v v' and I was wondering if that was also you? Nothing by it, just curious...


=-Rigs-=

Nope someone just trying to be funny most likely.

I noticed that when the account was registered, and would have taken action if it was some sort of troll attempt. But that handle actually appears to be based on that user's real name, and there is no indication that he is posting under that name to deceive anyone. Apparently it is just coincidence.

Blue, it could be worse, you could have been a Seattle Sonics fan like me.

You have my sympathies. I hate franchise moves.

I really liked the Sonics teams with Kemp and The Glove back in the day.

There is the question of how the pilots managed to land the plane if they were both blinded. I mean if they were really blinded, there is no way they could have brought that plane down. So while I do agree that shining a bright light into someone in a flying plane is a horribly stupid and potentially very dangerous thing to do, and could cause a pilot to lose control of the plane, I don't think those pilots were seriously injured. We might as well be sentencing people for driving in traffic with their headlights turned on high. (That might actually be a pretty good idea, god that pisses me off).

AFAIK most places do have laws that require switching off your high-beams for oncoming traffic.

I'm a little surprised at the reactions that think that this is not a problem since the plane didn't crash.

haha.. "treated for injuries" of having a bright shiny light in their faces? lol the cops can use some of their own medicine

did you even read that story? of course not, that would explain everything

The story was about UPS pilots, not cops. I'll assume you're trolling, that would explain everything.

when has a laser ever "blinded" a pilot enough to cause them to lose control of the vehicle?

Three hours ago.

btw, lynchmob mentality is the hallmark of sheeple thinking - so you're in good company

Awesome comment.

Maglev isn't anti-grav. They really need to stop with that clickbait bullshit. Anti-grav would be one of the most significant developments in human history. Magnets repelling each other is nothing new.

The word "gravity" does not appear once in the headline or the article.

Just as long as my Lakers (still cant believe we moved up to #2 when all i wanted was to keep in the top 5 pick) dont do something immensely stupid (Jim Bus i'm looking at you) and trade it, Clarkson, and Randle for the mental midget that is Demarcus Cousins.

Good luck to your Knicks tonight blue!

You should be fine. Take a look at their draft history: the Lakers are the anti-Knicks.

It wasn't sarcasm, but it wasn't terribly clear, either.

What I mean is, this is the first "It Came From E3" post. I miss past years when there would be dozens of those throughout the event.

So I didn't miss anything. In that case, my original response stands.

I was a little perplexed at the lack of E3 coverage on Blues last week.

There was nothing but coverage of E3 here last week.

This is coverage of the coverage.

You need a sarcasm emote. You have a sarcastic clap, but it's not quite the same.

Oops, yeah, if that was sarcasm it went right over my head, which is weird, since it's my native tongue.

The date of registering the domain is a good idea...if that is something that can be located.

That's easy, as there are proper records of such things. The domain was registered on September 20, 1996, but the site wasn't relaunched at the new location until October 9, 1996.

edit: Well, I tried....

And I appreciate it. But yeah, as I said, that's too late to help us. It just reflects what is still posted here from the time:
