Hey, who needs references?? I learned that on the FidoNet Writing Echo,
and then I ran across it again in a telephone system manual. (It's of
unknown etymology, but supposedly was invented by some telephone type,
kinda like the abbreviation "POTS," which [I am still not making this
up] stands for "Plain Old Telephone Service" in all Bellcore and
contractor documentation!)

If you'd SAID to give references, I could've come up with the page or
something <grump>!!
