In The core trouble of feedback, I presented a WYRIWYG questionnaire.

When I used the acronym WYRIWYG for What You Request Is What You Get, (closely following the acronym WYSIWYG) I had no idea that it’s already being used at least by John Howe, see his web site wyriwyg.com where it stands for What You Read Is What You Get. His WYRIWYG even is self-referential and alas a little lying. Very well.

Patrik Tast uses WYRIWYG as an abbreviation for What You Receive Is What You Get to describe a piece of software. And, of course, there are other variations, too, such as WYAIWYG — What You Accept Is What You Get. Got it?

    WYSIWYG, What You See Is What You Get, by the way, is also the name of a wonderful album by Chumbawamba.
