Hi

So I've been on MN for a while but didn't really know where to post this...

There are some phrases, acronyms etc that are used on here that I just don't understand!

E.g. What does it mean when someone replies to a thread with just biscuit

??

Also what does "NC" mean? smile

NC name change
NC no contact
biscuit no comment

NC= non contact with family member or name changed for a thread
biscuit= polite way of saying fuck off/your OP was not worthy of a reply

^ because Gordon Brown kept silent on/refused to answer what his favourite biscuit was

Hello! There's an acronym list which helps with some of them (although some of it is a bit bollocks, I've never seen anyone post NAK or MMTI grin)

The biscuit has a back story, but essentially is a 'you're being ridiculous/this thread is ridiculous/you're being a bit of a twat'.
