By "word" you mean letter, right?

Oh, okay, I see, the OP has post traumatic stress disorder, probably from reading so many acros. Anyone remember the online game acrophobia?

Just wait until somebody on here goes apesh*t about proper grammar and spelling in posts. Examples include:

it's/its
to/too/two
your/you're
there/their/there
breath (noun) vs. breathe (verb)

I'm not on a soapbox and no, this doesn't count as that rant.

If you're gonna hate on acronyms, people--OP included--should make sure their written English is impeccable.

Are you refering to this cheezy? if so that not right, what Arrheinous is describing is a contrived acronym.

What in Davy Jones’ locker did ye just bark at me, ye scurvy bilgerat? I’ll have ye know I be the meanest cutthroat on the seven seas, and I’ve led numerous raids on fishing villages, and raped over 300 wenches. I be trained in hit-and-run pillaging and be the deadliest with a pistol of all the captains on the high seas. Ye be nothing to me but another source o’ swag. I’ll have yer guts for garters and keel haul ye like never been done before, hear me true. You think ye can hide behind your newfangled computing device? Think twice on that, scallywag. As we parley I be contacting my secret network o’ pirates across the sea and yer port is being tracked right now so ye better prepare for the typhoon, weevil. The kind o’ monsoon that’ll wipe ye off the map. You’re sharkbait, fool. I can sail anywhere, in any waters, and can kill ye in o’er seven hundred ways, and that be just with me hook and fist. Not only do I be top o’ the line with a cutlass, but I have an entire pirate fleet at my beck and call and I’ll damned sure use it all to wipe yer arse off o’ the world, ye dog. If only ye had had the foresight to know what devilish wrath your jibe was about to incur, ye might have belayed the comment. But ye couldn’t, ye didn’t, and now ye’ll pay the ultimate toll, you buffoon. I’ll **** fury all over ye and ye’ll drown in the depths o’ it. You’re fish food now
