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)

  • I do use that acronym. The Yes to No ratio is 1:1. --- Mobius
    • You're also the only person who uses the acronym I believe. As I said, it has to be an established acronym, not a random one. -- Snail 19:29, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
    • Unfortunately, he's right. I have NEVER heard OT used. Try not to pull random acronyms out of the air when making a contribution. -- sigtau
    • Operation Thresher is barely mentioned and when it was, as a failure. As soon as someone makes a Campaign based around it, fine. But still largely is used to denote Off Topic. --Zacam
      • "OT" is generally used to mean "Off Topic". -- Droid803 19:33, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
        • "OT" stands for 'Off Topic'. General Battuta 19:35, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
          • The Yes to NO ratio is 1:5. Happy now? - Snail 19:38, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
            • Even if it is 1:100 the redirect is valid. The Wiki is to provide info and I don't see how this page can hurt. Also, "Off Topic" has nothing to do with the Wiki. What are you yelling at? This redirect is not damaging anything/anyone. --- Mobius
              • He might have a point there, in that it's not hurting anything, but it seems potentially confusing. A search for 'OT' should simply return no results.General Battuta 19:58, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
