revised Is it acceptable to omit the last period of an acronym?
Fixed broken image link, incorporated text link, emphasized text example of usage, replaced single breaks with regular breaks. (Still not much of an answer, but seems like a better contribution now.)

comment What is the word for someone who checks ID cards before permitting entry?
When this question was written in 2012, it thoroughly addressed the possibility of “bouncer” and how it only felt right in the context of a bar or nightclub. If your answer is disagreeing with that assessment, then you should address the concerns with this term as they’re expressed in the question. Even then, it might be better as a comment (especially since answers usually have explanation and support from authoritative sources). As it stands, this adds absolutely nothing to an old discussion and will likely be deleted. Please be sure to read beyond the headline of questions in the future.
