Just worked it out. What a muppet.

Being a doofus why would anyone want to shorten "No" to "NN"??? confused
have just read entire list and blush at the number of acronyms that I didn't know existed on MN

When someone is new and they say dd10, I always want to wade in and say "You have ten daughters?"

Thats a thankswith a little kiss for anyone who is puzzled grin

grin stealth

On here dtd could also mean dear/darling twin daughter, although I have read it in the past as doing the deed.

You are not alone,

Firstly I though, wow people don't normally put their names.

Then I thought bloody hell, how many post us Tia going to do

Then the penny dropped

I also thought there was a poster called Tia blush

It took me ages to work out why some posters just put a . and nothing else. I thought they had done it accidentally.

grin I used to think there were posters were called yanbu (pronounced yanboo) and yabu (yaboo) I dont always notice peoples nn, and just thought they were on here a lot.

Dtd is doing the deed isnt it? A couple of weeks before posters write "bump" grin
Else what does it stand for?

Hahahaha I thought exactly the same, and actually asked the OP of a thread why she said she'd just joined MN when I was sure I'd seen her posting her name after the OP before grin

I've just looked and it was quite a sensitive thread, so I'm glad I didn't go steaming in and only tentatively asked WTF??

I felt a right plonker afterwards grin

Ah- AITCH is the name of the poster who writes the round up. Afaik it doesn't stand for anything, except the pronounciation of "H".

BumpAndGrind Fri 26-Jul-13 23:28:12

I thought that too, only figured it out about a month ago...i've been here 2 years blush

EweHaveGoatToBeKiddin Fri 26-Jul-13 23:27:21

Yes! It's AITCH i never understand not AFAIK (which i now know the meaning of).

And Wilf sounds like a splendid lad indeed. I thought it was something to do with a wife and must have imagined loads of posters using the 'wilf acronym'.

chipmonkey Fri 26-Jul-13 23:22:28

Grumpy, the letter a the end of round-up is P! <<<shakes head at the decline in literacy>>>>

chipmonkey Fri 26-Jul-13 23:21:10

Wilf is absolutely-blumming-wonderful!

GrumpyRedhead Fri 26-Jul-13 23:17:20

Is it not AITCH at the end of the roundup?

makingdoo Fri 26-Jul-13 22:51:16

Oh me too!

I still think DTD is doing the deed!

Off to read the guidelines now!

[Disclaimer: I did know about Wilf so I'm not too bad]

I'm oddly pleased that you assumed Anon was a "she" smile

Fakebook Fri 26-Jul-13 22:30:04

When I was younger, I used to think Anon was the most famous poet in the world and used to wonder how she wrote so many poems in so many books. grin

MammaTJ Fri 26-Jul-13 22:24:25

Wilf is actually an MNers son, kind of our mascot as he has SN and is overcoming them to the Nth degree, he is awesome!!

MammaTJ Fri 26-Jul-13 22:21:38

My DD2 is called Tia,meaning Princess and she loves the threads that end in her name!!

QuintessentiallyOhDear Fri 26-Jul-13 22:19:34

And here I was thinking DTD was doing the deed and UCL was in fact University College London.

Not sure how I feel about having graduated from the other UCL.... hmm Or what that even means! shock

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Fri 26-Jul-13 22:18:05

Mrs Rajesh, it can, depending on which socio-economic group you belong to.

Ah, you've lost me..!

confused

grin

Dp thought Lol was short for Laura, as his dd Laura put it in texts.
