AMA : Another Meaningless Acronym

The technical world is filled with Acronyms (I nearly wrote Anacronyms, but that's probably the basis of another posting). Features, processes and innovations are usually given TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms) to make it quicker and easier to communicate.

However, one assumes when you use them, that the other person knows what you're talking about and understands the acronym the same way you do. Here's a few terms you may well hear being used more recently, their official meaning and an alternative suggestion:

Official: User Generated Content
Suggestion: Uncomplimentary Griping Comments

Official: Real Simple Syndication
Suggestion: Reading Senseless Subjects

Official: Customer Releationship Management
Suggestion: Costly Repetitive Marketing

Has anyone got any other suggestions for TLA's alternative meanings?
