For one, not every example is a trope. For two, an acronym is when the first letters of words used to describe themselves form a word Film, Actors, Guild, FAG. Suffering, Ugliness, Chaos, Mayhem, SCUM. SARIN and RADAR were not previously existing words but have become them.

If the letters don't form word in their own right (World Wrestling Entertainment)-WWE, pronounced as those letters, it's merely an abbreviation. This error having been brought to my attention by rodneyAnonymous, I say Enough Is Enough, it's time for a change!(NOD is an acronym by the way)
