It's simply *BAD ENGLISH* to change the meaning of a word based upon capitalization
What about "god" vs "God"? You don't see the difference there? And "March" vs "march"? Or "August" vs "august"?
Changing the meaning of an acronym (even a retrofitted one) years afterwards, and then claiming it's now an "incorrect usage" is equally unworthy of consideration.
So you always capitalize RADAR, LASER, SONAR, and SCUBA?
Or can you admit that those words, while originally being justified as acronyms, are now simply names, and can be spelled radar, laser, sonar, and scuba?
You're ranting, but we're not listening.
