Nope. Mr. (or Mrs, Miss, etc) is not the other valid choice for M I was thinking of.

OK, I think it's time for a clearer hint. One of the choices for M is a religious title, but this person is known more for political efforts than religious ones. (Hopefully this didn't make it TOO easy).

(side point, Gandhi's first name was Mohandas, so if MG does stand for Gandhi, it could be either his first name, or his title for M :) )

Hartley, you got it. And a point for Calamarain too, for being first to figure out the two Ms clue.

Mahatma is a religious title, while Mohandas is his name, so both are equally good ways to refer to Ghandi.

Actually, it's Technology Without Any Interesting Name, if I remember right.

In any case, it's your turn.

This seems to be harder than I expected. It's DROD related somehow, that help at all?

OK, now I'll just make this easy. The answer is a topic on the forum. I really thought someone would realize that with the colon in, but I guess not. Sorry. Should be simple now though.

Well, I wasn't exactly going for the usual OMGWTFBBQ... that'd be too easy, no? ;)

More hints if it is the non-obvious one.

Not that the obvious one is a proper acronym anyway. :/

Okay, I should've written it as OMGWTFB, but that will help you even less here...
