Term Acution Facility a discount window without stigama

We've called the TAF a discount window without stigma (and in fact, the Fed implemented the TAF because banks weren't using the discount window even when they should have). Banks can post a wide range of collateral, borrow on a non-disclosed basis, and can hold on to the cash for a while (by contrast, the discount window is overnight)
