Yes, one time I was thinking acronyms might be effective for the same kinda concept, with the added benefit of the mnemonic. We already have TC, BoT, ITD, HTs, WWJD, TV, DtB, etc. So some more could be a useful shorthand for common sentiments, f'rinstance...

TREESAP = Topic Really Exists Elsewhere, Somebody Already Posted
SITDOWN = Self Indulgent Topic Doesn't Offer Wisdom, Novelty
MOP-ROMP = Mean Old Purists Rained On My Parade
SAD-ONE = Self Appointed Defender Of Newbie Excesses
LOCAL = Leery Oldtimers Complain A Lot
DONT = Dat Object Not Tiki
ANTENNA = A Nice Try Except Not Necessarily Art
MIAMI = Marvelous, I Almost Mean It!
AHA-PAL = Already Have And Paid Alot Less
PEA-SOUP = Planning Ebay Auction, Seeking Optimal Upper Price
DOLLARS = Dear Opinion-makers, Look Like Auction Reserve Suitable?
SALAD = Stop Analyzing, Let's All Drink
WINE = When Is Next Event?
CRAP = Conflict Restricts Attending Party
MATE-US = May Attend This Event, Update Soon
ACT-IT = Absolutely Coming Too, I Think
DUMPING = Drinkmaker Uses Mostly Pineapple In Navy Grog
DAMIT = Drinker Alert: Mai-tai Is Terrible
IDAHO = I'm Drunk And Happily Over-posting
PA-VICS = Palo Alto Venue Is Closing Soon

Sorry about that last one. It's hard to smile about that.

-Randy

Or maybe there are some secret numbers for those-in-the-know.

(And for those-in-the-know: 27. OMG, definitely 27.)
