I don't think phpPP is the answer (a five-letter word where four of them are "P"!? not very catchy). Also it sounds too similar to phpBB when you say it

I voted 'Other'. However, I'm unable to think of something better right now (I see that phpportal.com has been taken)

White Anglo Saxon Protestant - it's what means WASP for me (and for my dictionary :) )

I prefer phpPP...

phpPP means to me, and my self written dictionary, "Pro-Halicarnasuss-Poo-Poo-Phace". ;)
So there, :P
Anyway, Wasp is a perfectly legimate name.

Well, I've got more confindence in my Oxford Advanced Lerner's diccionary (btw it's White Anglo-Saxon Protestant and not White Anglo Saxon Protestant) than in Pit's Diccionary ;) ...and actually i haven't understood these words, so i did't get the joke :D ...sorry english it's not my first language, not even the second one, and definitely not the third one :)

if it's legitimate? well...i don't know. but is it political correct? :-D
wasssup with ya? didya ask our brothers?:D Are ya with us, or maybe ya are a White Pit? ;)

Sorry erk, but I refuse to submit to your opinion that wasp is not a good choice simply because it is also an abbrieviation of something that offends you. It is a perfectly normal word. If it had been suggested simply because it offends some people, then I would agree. If lots of people were offended, I would also agree. But as it is, I don't. Don't take it personally, that's just the way I feel.
