5 seconds in Google is all it takes to learn what an abbreviation means. Learn how to use it.

Of course....

Kim uses GEM in the post below. I've no idea what he means. GEM has more than 250 uses as an Acronym..

But I gave the hint that he should look up irony. Because in fact I did not use it as an acronym at all, I used a common ironic phrase that meant the opposite of what it said.

"That was a gem of a post" is more or less equivalent to saying "that post was a diamond in the rough" ... something unusually good. But I used it ironically, and I will leave it to you to figure out what that meant.

That was my initial assumption, but then acronyms were mentioned and it was in capitals...
