All of the acronym meanings are correct but the blackball meaning goes back to Masonic ritual of bringing new members in. The Masons voted with a white and black marble. If you wished to join and were brought up by nomination and received a blackball in the voting then you were not eligible for membership. If all marbles were white, you were considered for induction.
