    Political Acronyms Not Permitted

    Rule 23 states:

    "The use of political acronyms is not permitted. User names related to or associated with a political ideology, its leaders, or its organizations are equally not permitted."
    I have a question, what is a 'political acronym' and what would be an example of such a user name that would go against this policy?

    I'm not actually considering using a political acronym for a name, just curious about examples of what kind of usernames these are and what would be a verboten user name against rule 23. (I'm not looking for an example of an existing one, just make one up).

    Thank you in advance.

    Things such as "WPWW", "14/88" and "HH" come to mind. As Skadi is an intelligent Germanic preservationist forum, I believe this is a good rule for reinforcing full sentences and proper grammar.

    I hope this doesn't extend to abbreviations or initials of political parties. I've been writing ALP for the Australian Labor Party and L-NP for the Liberal-National Party coalition.

    GermanischerAdler has basically hit the nail on the head. Nationalist forums are fairly prone for having posts signed by floskels such as "WPWW" or "14/88" and are also prone for having every second username end on 14 or 88, and to be honest 14_HHaNS_SS_88 looks a little less high-brow that we appreciate.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
