New HB acronym - Exists But Obscure
One lesson of the Internet (even apart from HB) is that there
are very few really new ideas. I post very few of my own half
ideas here because I take the time to search for prior art. and
cull the ones someone else thought of first.
But sometimes I miss. Had an idea for a toy a few
searched with various terms... couldn't find anything like it so
went ahead and posted. It took a couple days for someone
to find the exact thing.
So ... EBNWK: Exists But Not Widely Known? EBHTF: Exists But
Hard To Find?
EBO: Exists But Obscure... is the shortest I could come up
Though I'm sure some acronym already exists for this purpose
that I just haven't stumbled upon yet.

As long as you don't confuse it with
other EBO usages [kdf, May 21 2020]
Too ambiguous. I could say a borg's soul is NWKTE without
implying anything about its actual existence.
||EBO is shorter and more definite.
||I like the sound of it. I also like the word "obscure". It's
underused, in my opinion, and EBO reminds me of ELO. What
can be bad about that? ( [Cuit_au_ Four]'s linky.)
||Not to be confused with Extrahepatic Biliary Obstruction, or
Extremely Bad Operations, or ... Ebola. (see acronyms & and
||I love that list, [kdf]. Evil Baby Orphanage - brilliant.
||I initially read Employee Buyout as Employee Burnout.
