MMO, MMOG and MMORPG (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massively_multiplayer_online_game, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massively_multiplayer_online_role-playing_game) are acronyms I've seen occasionally. This morning, I got an offer for an MOOC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massive_open_online_course) and I suspect "massive" may be making its move by making its way into other acronyms as well.
