This Wasn't A Religious Memo

This is a verbatim sentence from an email I got today:

It is much easy for us to qualify this GOD.

I sat there and looked at the sentence a moment, wondering why this business memo suddenly got religious.

Then it hit me: the writer was using shorthand for Good Optical Die (and if you don't know what that is, I'll just say it is a rather prosaic technical widget and nothing to do with theology).
