And it was established in 1987. Even if you were 'spared' Mr Handley [your loss, believe it!], it was a peculiarly foolish piece of ill judgment, surely, to name a traditional archive after one of the most famous comedy shows in the entire history of radio.

What on earth could they have been thinking of!

On the other hand, postings by the Irish Traditional Music Archive attract the same silly reaction here Very Regularly. It gets old very quickly.

Do realise that [i]the most famous comedy shows in the entire history of radio.[/i] may be true in the UK, everywhere else, well, we haven't a clue what you're on about.

Very tiresome when an intelligent person defends a piece of ignorance by denouncing a fact as too obscure or alien to be expected to know.

You'd think anyone adopting an acronym would check if it had previously been used, surely? I know 1987 was a bit too early to google it, but can there have been no-one around who had heard of this one's previous incarnation?

Bad luck happens, mind. A cousin of mine who is an active local politician established a help-and-assistance organisation for his council constituents in the late 1970s.

He called it Aids.

It is possibly more tiresome when intelligent persons insist that internation organisations check if the acronym of the organisation's chosen name would send some British persons into a fit of schoolboy giggles.


I don't think the Irish Traditional Music Archive should worry about some British radio show, why would they?

You answer your own question above ~~

"the same silly reaction here Very Regularly. It gets old very quickly."

Just a bit of research would have obviated this silliness and tediousness and annoyance on your part, wouldn't it? Acronyms are notoriously dodgy ground, and should always be checked for incongruous or unfortunate precedents.

And your "some British radio show" just happens to be one of the most famous radio shows ever. Your belittling "some" is an unworthy attempt at a get-out; and a self-denunciation of the ROI as a sort of self-satisfiedly inward-looking provincial backwater. Which it isn't, and I doubt if your countrymen would thank you for trying to make it appear so.

Why on earth would the Irish Traditional Music Archive avoid using the acronym ITMA? It's of no concern to them that the acronym means something else in the UK. The National Sheep Association must be livid with the Americans.

Well if it's no concern to them, why get so uptight if some UKers make jokes about it? I don't see they can have it both ways, using without checking an acronym already pre-empted, and then getting all snarky like Peter Laban

"the same silly reaction here Very Regularly. It gets old very quickly."

when anyone refers to the fact.

That's all. I have nothing to add to this thread, which is if no immediate concern to me anyhow. Carry on happily in your introspective Hibernian isolationism; and we hope it keeps fine for you.

TTFN.

There is nothing wrong with using a pre-empted acronynm if it is the most suitable one. I don't think the Irish Traditional Music Archive (or the whole of 'Hibernia' for that matter) gets all that uptight when it's pointed out that their acronym has been pre-empted in the UK. You're right to say they can't have it both ways but wrong to assume they want it both ways. I think they're happy enough with their acronym. UKers are free to pass remarks about it, but don't get uptight if the reaction is 'so bloody what'.

Well said twangman. The ITMA is a magnificent organisation with very dedicated and helpful staff members who provide an invaluable service and resource to traditional musicians and singers from Ireland and all over the world. Long may the ITMA prosper and serve.

Surely everyone knows that ITMA is the Institute of Trademark Attorneys.

… or perhaps I'm mixing it up with ITMA 2015, the world's largest textile machinery exhibition …

No, I remember now. It's the Imported Tyre Manufacturers' Association.

Just for what it is worth!

The World Wildlife Fund had to change its acronym because some tosspot wrestling organisation in the good old U S of A had already used it.

But then the Americans have the World Series of a sport that only takes place in about two other places in the world and then not very seriously.
