comment Etiquette in diplomatic use of the English language (pronunciation of names)

comment Is there a better way to say “the highest possible”
I believe this is the wrong part of speech for the job. This sentence, more than likely, needs an adjective. Acme is a noun.

comment Is “pretty ugly” an oxymoron?
certainly possible wouldn't be an oxymoron. The meaning of possible in that context is able to be done. So, it becomes definitely + able to be done which is not contradictory.
