Where's John L's BTY?

I've always wondered why he uses a "Y" instead of the more obvious and common "W". :?:
"Most people just want tomorrow to look pretty much like today." - Terry Pratchett
We'll have to ask John L to be sure, but maybe it is short for "Beware the Yeti?"

...or "Bend towards yesterday?" about, "Bubblebath troubling you?"

...maybe, "Between two Yvettes?"

...perhaps, "Bury the Yo-yo?"

Is it possibly a green thing? "Bears tour Yukon?"

A generational thing? "Beautiful toadstooled Yippee?" or "Blame the younglings?"

A French thing? "Bardot towel yearning?"

I've added COS' AAAAA to the list and will similarly add anything else suggested.

Incidentally, WTH is ASACR anyway? It is not on the list and I was under impression it meant something like

"As .. can remember "

Googling reveals ASACR to be in heavy use, but no decyphering.

I don't think ASACR is a real acronym. The only thing close is a French term for some Asian coop association. It can be a misspelled ASCAR but not applicable for net usage (American Sports Car Association.)

What I figure is it was a misspelled parochial Acronym used by someone who used it to mean "As soon as I can reply" or "As sure as I can recall."

Personally, I wouldn't use it. Acronyms are used to streamline communication - not to make it harder to understand.
