An Academic Look at YGPM

YGPM is used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). In other words, it is not used as a part of speech in a wider sentence.

Of interest, YGPM is an initialism abbreviation. Technically, this means it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., WY Gee Pee Em), but as this is harder to say than "You've got a private message," it is not often uttered using its letters. In other words, the abbreviation YGPM is for efficiency in writing and not efficiency in speech.
