Hey dip, speaking about acronyms, what have these groups in common: G*P, SCX, TAP, VAC, VOZ? ;)
maden: they all suck? :D

The right answer is that they all are missing. Ok, some don't have a relevance, but "Generations Ahead"-Scoopex should be on it. Ok, discontinued project but ... ;)
madenmann, to be honest, when i see through this list now, nearly 8 years later, i have absolutely no clue after which criteria i chose the groups and what were my sources. i remember leeching all kind of stuff from bbs archives, but thats all.

MadenMann: Oh, I've lost. I thought the right answer was that they have 3 letters. I'm happy it was only a puzzle for dipswitch.

"my burnt face sense is tingeling"
Just curious about the breakpoint 05 Adok-Dipswitch encounter...

Adok: Wow. Who'd think of acronyms with 3 letters in a list of mainly TLAs?
If the list just "mainly" contains TLAs and not "only" TLAs, then it certainly does require some analytical reasoning to discover that all of these acronyms consist of three letters. It would also be such a thing even if the list contained _only_ TLAs and there was _no_ explicit note included in it saying that it contained only TLAs.

Paralax: My comments were related to the puzzle as such. It wouldn't have been necessary to mention anybody's name in my comments. This puzzle was fitting in this thread because of some of the comments posted before in which people doubted each other's intelligence (mainly EP's, but that doesn't matter).

Sounds very scientific. It's scientific too to look whether some (chosen) elements are in a set or not. Anyway, it was for dipswitch and nobody cares but you. :)
