As everyone knows we have a forum Jargon Buster which is related to ASD - to be found at the top right hand corner of the page for anyone who doesn't know.

It has been suggested that we start a topic for non ASD related shorthand. So for the benefit of new members and those who find our abbreviations puzzling we have started a list that everyone can add to.

DD - dear daughter

DS - dear son

DH - dear husband

IYKWIM - if you know what I mean

IMHO - in my honest opinion

Over to you............

Shush, hen... take it where you can get it (credit that is!)

Gordie,

When we have enough abbreviations & H&dy Shrth&'s we can put them together and find somewhere for them.

Don't tell the techie's though, we'll break it to them gently nearer the time. whistle.gif Did I just hear someone mention the bin!!!

Could someone enlighten me on some of the slang and abbreviations used on the Parts for Sale Forum? E.g. btt, pm, etc? Thanks

There is no Parts for Sale Forum that I have seen here. Autism doesn't consist of any any "parts for sale". Another intrusion. And a hack too, perhaps, since my direct challenge to you yesterday in the adults only section has disappeared.
