    Hmm. I'm going to create a sub-field in my new Games Locator for these. I'm sure people would love to type in 'MM' as what they're looking for and the PHP/MySQL could sort out the rest.

    There will be a couple of reserved acronyms, but the ones I see most often will be entered.

    POS=Piece Of Crap (not exactly).

    for one thing, why does Big Hurt get two labels and Black Hole gets none? and secondly -- c'mon nobody talks about Big Hurt around here
