Since when does "OT" stand for Operation Thresher? I've never seen that acronym used anywhere before now. I don't think it's appropriate to just make up random acronyms and redirect everything. It has to be an established and understood acronym before redirecting can happen IMO. - Snail 17:56, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
