It is a great contender for sure, only thing with this word is that it fits better at the beginning than the end. So just call it the BPA, much better!

better at beginning sure, for bastion of professional arbitrators, but doubt Bryan wants to toss the acronym, hence the professional arbitration bastion. :D

Some good 'uns offered up in here for sure. :thumbsup:

I like this suggestion, considering it's defined as a person who serves as a trusted agent or intermediary in commercial negotiations or transactions I think it fits really well!

It's good but my only concern is that brokerage usually deals with two willing parties wanting to exchange cash for shares or commodities or other entities and is nearly always associated with trade, as opposed to one happy party and one complainant. On its own 'broker' sounds fine, but when suffixed with 'Arbitration' the word is slightly out of context.

'Bastion' is too close to 'bastard' and will endure obvious ridicule. And it's French which makes it worse.

We could use the German word 'bund' which means 'alliance' 'association' or band and is also in the English dictionary, as many German words are.

Just...a humble suggestion. You could also substitute 'practised' for professional as you guys are already the seasoned veterans with an exisitng positive history in arbitration.

(pre-eminent would apply as well, but might sound a bit...horn-tooting).

Why not go one better and have Pears Apples Bananas? This would be quite fitting as the PAB process is likely often mis-used by fruitcakes :eek:

:rolleyes: Not everyone has the dunover mindset to name any/everything new with a negative connotation. :D
I'm not saying bastion is the best choice, but bastard never came my mind. Bryan could call it a potato and you'd find an unsavoury nomenclature. :lolup:

Though my spelling is good, my typing sucks dirty donkey bits, and had to edit the spelling, now forever highlighted in your quote. :lolup:

No really, I didn't even know 'nomenclature' either....so both were lost on me.

It's not too late to delete my post if it makes you feel better. I'll just say it was for personal reasons!

Now imagine how this is for me:eek2:

Both of your word do exist dion. I had to look up them both before I saw one of them was a mistake.

Lol, not at all, wasn't intending to sound pedantic, just the first word came to mind. The forum is littered wit my poor typing skills - sad to admit, I never learned. I'm still a 2 fingered hunt and pecker (boy, that just opened the doors to dirty retorts lol).

There's two ways of looking at this:

You're either three months too late for the Pornhub thread, or just a pioneer for a yet-untitled smut thread

I'll suggest professional arbitrary besiegers, or professional arbitrary brotherhood, or else professional arbitrary beratung (sburo), or maybe professional arbitrary beneficiary system/service? maybe professional arbitrary benefactor..

How about professional arbitrary back-up, professional arbitrary backer, professional arbitrary backing? something along those lines?
A fourth word could be added, which doesn't have to be in the acronym PAB..Like Professional Arbitrary Backing service

Potatoes are very savoury. With the exception of sweet potatoes of course.

Now, I hate to tell you this, but funnily enough in some areas of the YooKay your 'taters' are, ahem, your testicles. :eek2:

So you're right and wrong. An unsavoury nomenclature, but alas one I cannot claim credit for.;)
