FOR THOSE FEELING A LITTLE BIT LISTLESS
DT has provided the very incomplete list of DT Wackronyms (first used in DT's "The Official Goldbuster Guidebook", 1986) below. They do not necessarily include others that we've used throughout our website. Some of these we made up, some of them we heard or came across.  When we know where the WACKRONYM™ acronym came from, or who we first heard them from we try to give credit where credit is due (and how much does credit do? see ALPHA BETS noun-verbs. We know we have barely scratched the surface, so if you want to send some email with some suggestions, please do CONTACT DT..
