I prefer the abbreviation "SR3" because I am trying to communicate and share information with people that may or may not be regulars on dumpshock.
I prefer the abbreviation "BBB" to refer to the core rules because I have had the experience of repeatedly smacking "forgetful" players with the book, while shouting "Big Black Book! Read the Big Black Book!" It leaves a lasting impression.
and yet, the actual BBB was riddled with errors and misprints...when i see BBB, i take people at their word that it's what their talking about, or what some used to call their "baby" when the books were first released...only 1000 were printed, and they were quickly bought up by the most diehard fans - including myself...i remember that everyone was so proud to get them and posted which number they had gotten...

ah, the "good ol' days"...
