My idea encompasses both types of acronyms. The typical perlmonks acronyms mentioned above, and the things that you are likely to see in messages.

TIMTOWTDI There is More Than One Way To Do It

etc...
Perhaps the page should be devided into two sections or something to explain that they are different...

    One wee-tiny quibble, brother krujos.   AFAIK, TMTOWDI sans the first "I" is the original form of the "There's More Than One Way To Do It" acronym.  

    FWIW, http://www.acronymfinder.com/ is my favorite place to find what an acronym stands for.   There's even an AcronymFinder form on my homenode, in the Search Jones section.   Of course it doesn't (yet?) contain PM-specific acronyms.
