The meaning of the acronym is supposed to be kept secret until a pledge is officially initiated into the sorority. They are not supposed to reveal it to outside parties after they learn it. There was a controversy in February of 2012 when the meaning was revealed on Wikipedia and sourced with a book written by a sorority pledge. Sorority members demanded that the reference be taken out.
