Can someone be so kind to write down what all the initials stand for as I have no idea for example DC,DH etc. Or tell me where to find the thread that explains it. If there is one.
Thank you x

There's a short cut to the Acronyms List in the menu at the top of each page (next to FAQs)

It might be somewhere else on the mobile site though, so here it is

That's a helpful place to start but I'm Not sure that all abbreviations are on there. tAAT confused me for ages. I believe it means "thread about a thread" now but could be wrong!

Maybe HQ could do an updated list?

There was a thread in Site Stuff a while back asking for additions to the list, but I'm not sure that anything happened about updating it.

STBEX stands for soon to be ex (husband / wife / whatever)

To me ages to work that one out

I thought it stood for Stupid Tw*t Bastard Ex....blush

Hi twiglet - sorry we're a bit late to respond. As Fru has said, our acronyms page can be found here. We are looking at updating it soon - does anyone have any suggestions for what we could add?
