ADMIYA (acronyms do me in yet again)

Over a year ago, I wrote a post about the acronym IAI. You see, I was searching for information about the International Association for Identification, and instead found information about the Irrigation Assocation of India.

There are many cases in which we focus on an acronym, and then find out that we've focused on the wrong acronym.

If you don't believe me, just ask the people who run the website for the Scottish Organic Producers Association. CNET's Chris Matyszczyk notes that this association has received a number of negative comments lately, despite the fact that the Scottish Organic Producers Association has nothing to do with the proposed "Stop Online Piracy Act" legislation in the United States.

Incidentally, Matyszczyk is NOT the Chief of Naval Education and Training...

H/T Helen Sventitsky-Rother, to whom I commented:

Actually, the protests were entirely justified. This organization promotes the enslavement of sentient organic products to satisfy the needs of indulgence and capitalist greed. Let the organic products go free! (singing) "All we are sayyyyyingggg..."
