Well, he's got a valid point. I don't get why everyone is discussing
the word "Gimp" from an English language standpoint when Gimp is an
*acronym*, as I also pointed out earlier on in this discussion.
For example, "Sarasota County Area Transit" is a name of a transit
agency and its acronym is rather interesting. :)
