Unless you're reading it as an RSS feed in Thunderbird, in which case there is no dotted line ;o) I still have no clue what it means!

our IT dept had the e-mail signature

ICT - Innovate... Change... Transform

We became so sick of this that some of us changed it to the more realistic

ICT - Interfere... Confuse... Terminate

Glad to see IT back again.

Point of order

TLA, WTF, FMS and OMG are initialisms, not acronyms. FFS.
