It's just a DAM, not a Dye DAM (Semantics inside)

This has always been a pet peeve of mine, when an acronym is used, but then one of the words in the acronym is used at the same time. Dye DAM for example. The "D" in DAM stands for Dye, so basically you are calling the gun a Dye Dye Action Matrix. There's a superfluous "Dye" in there. It's the same as when someone says PIN Number, or VIN Number. The "N" stands for NUMBER, there's no reason to say number again, you're wasting your breathe! And I'm wasting your time.

Just had to rant. Thank you. Now I'm going to go watch the OWN Network.
