As it is for some reason becoming an actual topic of debate, do you get annoyed when people abbreviate really long song titles into hard to understand jumbles of letters that look like someones re-arranged the alphabet?

Strangely I agree with the top option, but don't to appear foolish and so haven't voted. Hoist by my own petard.

Just realised the title of this thread should probably be "2 abrv. or not 2 abrv." Wink

Also, petrolmonkey is living proof that the brain power exists to work out even the most obscure acronyms!

"erm no it wunt u fick arsole"


"yr mum scrms wn she swvls on mi ck, u usls fkng nnce."

"ur the nonce u sick muva fker go gt ya pension u old retrd"

Sorry about the high level of swearing.
