Alphabet city

This via a mega-value reader, from Global Telecoms Business, a new acronym, even less appealing than SPIT:

We're battling with the concept of IMS for the next issue of Global
Telecoms Business. It's one of those abbreviations within abbreviations -- IP
multimedia subsystem -- so it's particularly meaningless to most of us. Then Eli
Katz of the Internet Telephony Service Providers' Association offered us another
new abbreviation, SPIT -- for Spam over Internet Telephony. And so we wondered about who creates all these, and had a go ourselves, but came up only with VOMIT -- Voice
over Mobile IP Telephony. Any better contributions gratefully received.
