At first I thought this was dumb. But then I remembered that RADAR and LASER are real words now too. Acryonyms eventually become words. Even though it seems dumb, there's no doubt that there is a long history of this.



Yes, but when you're talking about Radar or a laser, its generally thought that you have an idea what you're talking about and aren't a freaking moron.

TXTSPEK is turning our youth in to bumbling idiots! I've seen reports handed in to a teacher containing TXTSPEK and the student didn't know why there was a problem, or why they flunked the assignment.
