INSTANT FAMEImmediate Notoriety, Simply Tack Advertising Nonsense To Forums And Miff Everybody! Angela Brett, when somebody spammed the Apronyms Forums about a website promising 'instant fame', where the fame was no more than having your name on a website... something you could achieve by posting a message on the forums. I don't recommend spamming the forums, however, please post something constructive instead.
INSTANT FAME (2)I'll Now Spam To Attract Nitwits To Find About My Eminence Angela Brett, when somebody spammed the Apronyms Forums about a website promising 'instant fame', where the fame was no more than having your name on a website. The site appeared to be run by the Yellow Pages, and as I doubt they would resort to forum-spam for advertising, I can only assume the poster was trying to attract people to the site in order to increase his or her own 'fame'. Although, if having your name on a website counts as fame, then the simple act of posting on the forums gave just as much fame as the fame website itself.

To Achieve Notoriety, Try Forming Apronyms." -- Miss Expansion 2003 Angela Brett, when somebody spammed the Apronyms Forums about a website promising 'instant fame', where the fame was no more than having your name on the website. If having your name on a website counts as fame, then a much better way to get famous is to submit apronyms to this site. (Note that this apronym was added in 2005... but I haven't added many apronyms recently so I won't claim that fictitious title for this year.)
