...to think people can type in full without needing so many Acronyms?

(93 Posts)

Its taken me long enough to learn LMAO, LOL, WTF, FTW, BUTTHURT...

But this site has its own list of acronyms

SD
HD
DH
DS
PS3
DD
MIL/MILF?
TT
DP
DW
DK
CC
BCC
FU
SU
STI
PS
PPS
KK

Seriously is it too tough to type "my daughter is the devil re-incarnated" or "husband's snoring is frightening the cat" instead of:

"MD is the D re-incarnated"

"H's snoring is F'ing the cat"

Seriously? I'm sure there is a dictionary somewhere here that I can learn all these new acronyms... but I have enough problems remembering my frikking postcode.

AIBTUMDFFU?
(Am I being totally unreasonable, my dear fellow forum users?)

GoodbyePorkPie Thu 16-May-13 20:37:57

CarpeVinum Thu 16-May-13 20:40:40

LRD even...

EskSmith Thu 16-May-13 20:40:43

All forums I have been on have acronyms for commonly discussed items subjects. If you aren't interested in persevering then MN possibly isn't the forum for you. HTH

Ta carpe.

I have been known to slip a 'dear' in in RL. Usually to howls of derision from my DFs. But hey, YOLO IMO.

HoneyDragon Thu 16-May-13 20:43:19

Eeeeeeeeew LRD

MIL and MILF deffo not the same grin [snort]

BUTTHURT?? confused

Tweasels Thu 16-May-13 20:43:51

PS3 isn't synonymous with Mumsnet as far as I know. Sony may have a trademark for that.

BUTTHURT???? Is that connected to STI?

WilsonFrickett Thu 16-May-13 20:43:54

And what is BUTTHURT? Does it just mean you hurt your bum?

Shaky Thu 16-May-13 20:44:17

When I refer to DH I am usually thinking "Dick Head"

HTH

phantomnamechanger Thu 16-May-13 20:44:47

is BUTTHURT from a special Friday night thread??

ParsingFancy Thu 16-May-13 20:45:41

If you can't cope with PS and CC, not sure we can really help you.

And if you're struggling with STI, you'll need an appointment in the morning.
