LMAO's probably a bad example there, plenty of people use it as an acronym.

I can’t figure out how you would make that anything other than an initialism?

Like what, L-mao, as in the chairman?

Not really meant to be, it's an initialism first and foremost.

Yeah, but plenty of initialisms get corrupted into acronyms. Better to use examples that are unequivocal. BMW was a good one. PNG is another.

Don't want to argue, just pointing out that it might confuse some people.
