Mom, and Now Judge, Stand Up to RIAA

59Bassman Re:Why do people keep calling it **AA? (670 comments)

Ummm, wouldn't it be \w+AA?

\w+ = 1 or more alphanumerics
\w* = 0 or more alphanumerics

I mean \w*AA would match "AA" as well as "FAA", "RIAA" and "MPAA". I don't think the Alcoholics Anonymous folks would like to be lumped in with the other AAs, do you?
