WorldNetDaily hit by 'shrinkage'
Sept. 22, 1998: After WorldNetDaily had been publishing for a year or so, it became noticeable editors and others in the office were using the shorthand "WND" to refer to news site. Even readers were using it.

But we acquired it and registered it nine years ago today. Now WorldNetDaily.com readers have an easy three-letter alternative to find their favorite website online.
It's easier for friends to remember when you tell them where you get your news. It's easier to type – fewer cases of tunnel carpel syndrome. And it's just the right size for a bumper sticker on the tiny car Al Gore is planning for your future.
