We're going to need EC soon for the MMO, "Eternal Crusade."

Hmm.. perhaps not just EC though since there's already 4 like abbreviations... Maybe ECru? Et.Cru? E-C? E.C.? Idk.. something.

While I totally dig this I think it might be impractical.

I also abbreviate Morathi's Darkest Sin (MDS), AgeOfEgos (AoE), Kilkrazy / Kid_Kyoto (confusingly, both KK)... and that's just from the mods!

Almost literally in the Phantom Zone.

I feel the need to correct; DKoK is Death Korps of Krieg, not Death Korps of Kreig.

I may not like them, but right should be right.

Imagine that you’re sitting down to dinner with your family, and while everyone else gets a serving of the meal, you don’t get any. So you say “I should get my fair share.” And as a direct response to this, your dad corrects you, saying, “everyone should get their fair share.” Now, that’s a wonderful sentiment — indeed, everyone should, and that was kinda your point in the first place: that you should be a part of everyone, and you should get your fair share also. However, dad’s smart-!@# comment just dismissed you and didn’t solve the problem that you still haven’t gotten any!

The problem is that the statement “I should get my fair share” had an implicit “too” at the end: “I should get my fair share, too, just like everyone else.” But your dad’s response treated your statement as though you meant “only I should get my fair share”, which clearly was not your intention. As a result, his statement that “everyone should get their fair share,” while true, only served to ignore the problem you were trying to point out.

That is why we need feminism, and why I am not simply egalitarian.

In light of recent events, I'd like to bump my request for DFG to have a tooltip for Dreamforge Games, to make clear they are different than Defiance Games.

If "no" is the answer, that's cool, but the situation has changed a little since October and may warrant another look, is why I mention it.

Hey. I don't know, in both of those cases I think more people are familiar with the abbreviations than the actual phrases. And I don't think I've seen either of them used on this site, possibly ever.

Greebo had spent an irritating two minutes in that box. Technically, a cat locked in a box may be alive or it may be dead. You never know until you look. In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.
