Acronyms like TBGL or Transgender Bisexual Gay Lesbian for short are exploding in number exponentially and have become a complete nightmare.
To highlight the absurdity of using acronyms to “shorten” sentences, let’s look at one by a writer at Motley Fool, a website for which I was a fool to participate in discussions in their forums AOT which is short for At One Time and makes the sentence ML again which is short for Much Longer but of course since I used it once in a sentence along with a billion other acronyms, you will remember it so I can in all future articles just use the acronym because everyone will understand it along with the other billion trillion acronyms that have replaced the stars in number.
“The other strategy involved a similar move but from a slightly different perspective. Under the strategy known as “file as a spouse first” or FAASF for short”.
Rather the paradox to use an acronym as the sentence would be SHORTER without it.
“The other strategy involved a similar move but from a slightly different perspective. Under the strategy known as “file as a spouse first“.”
It’s also incorrect to state ‘file as a spouse first’ when that is a title, it should be written ‘File As A Spouse First”.
Now let’s consider that if it’s a Lesbian that is applying for Social Security Retirement or SSR for short/long, then it should be presented as LFAASF. If we are referring to the entire alternate sexual community or ASC for short/long, some would then use LGBTFAASF.
Of course this is not as important as learning how the article presents the fact that Obama screwed up our retirement though it’s not as bad as how the alternate community leaders, hystericals, hucksters, idiots, and politicians, screwed up our lives with HIV drug poisons, many of those FOO’s which is short for Friends Of Ours don’t have lives anymore.
