In Response To: Re: I suggest CEA, and here's why (Narcogen)
: Except that that's bad.
Yikes! I've been Narcogened! Maybe we could have a badge for that. :P
However, we're partly talking cross-purposes. To clarify, I was only talking about casual Halo-centric chat. In that situation CEA would do to make yourself understood with minimal fuss; that much I think you'd concede. You objected that it "doesn't look right" in not starting with an H. I don't have that reaction myself, but in any case it's not as if the lack of an H would be a new thing, bearing in mind the oft-used abbreviations CE and ODST for a couple of earlier games.
Aside from the "doesn't look right" thing, your objections relate to organizational concerns (alphabetic convenience, tagging and searching). Well, that's another matter of course. If we were trying to decide an ideal term which also takes those into account, you indeed have some points worth raising. But like I said, I was only concerned with casual chatty use. As it happens however, I also don't think casual chat should trouble itself to be influenced by those other concerns; so they don't sway me against using CEA in contexts such as this forum. I sure wouldn't be surprised to see plenty of folk including an H at the front, but personally I'll do without, partly because CEA rolls off the tongue easier.
