In our post about how Osama bin Laden's death was experienced by the Facebook generation, we noted that Fox News continues to spell his first name "Usama" and abbreviate his moniker as "UBL," while the rest of the major American media prefers "Osama" and "OBL." The situation prompted a response from one reader that was letter-perfect.

OMG! Is it OBL or UBL? NBC, CBS and ABC say OBL, Faux News says UBL. WTF? (At least that's my initial reaction.)
