IMO both "Y2K" AND "Y2k" are as clear-cut a case of unnecessary use of
pseudo-hip obfuscation as there ever was.

Can somebody explain to me what is wrong with "Year 2000"? Is there a
toner shortage?

Also, there is no such thing as "The Year 2000 Bug", singular. There are
many possible bugs related to processing of years 2000 and higher.
