Nonsense. OK and ASAP are in common usage - RBI is jargon specific to one very narrow field. Note to sports fans: Not everyone is a sports fan.TheBookPolice wrote: I say that "RBI" has become a word in its own right, like "OK" or "ASAP" (for better or worse in those cases).
Regardless, all your tap-dancing seems pretty pointless when it is (and, to my ears, sounds) correct to simply say "he has multiple RBI." No bastardization needed. Would you make a similar concession for "pluralizing" RPM - a word MUCH more common than RBI? I hope not, since it makes no sense.
On a completely unrelated note, I've become increasingly irritated by the complete turnaround in the meaning of the phrase "thank you." It used to be a polite expression of appreciativeness. Now, apparently, it's some sort of demand: "Thank you for not smoking." Fuck you for not having the balls to just say "smoking not allowed."
