I almost always use DH because people know what it is and I'm lazy.

However what precisely the D stands for changes by mood

OMG I read all 10 pages, and most of them were really enlightening. There were a couple that I think meant something else, though.

BFN - I was told meant Big Fat Negative
BFP - Same Token, Big Fat Positive

and CPF, I know for a fact means Chinese Pre-Fold, as a cloth prefold could be made from any fabric, but a true CPF is made with chinese cotton and imported from China.

Cynthia you are my savior. I'm completely new to this stuff but so thrilled to have finally gotten hooked in. Thanks so much for the translations. Since I've got your attention I may as well ask how do you put all the various bio info at the end of a post. You know like: Mama to Emma 5/26/98 and angel #2 due in February plus all the little smilies and all? I'm sure it's something easy that I just haven't figured out yet. Thanks for your help.

Christie

Hi Christie and welcome to MDC! :rock

Click on the UserCP link at the upper left of the page and there you'll find in the left side menu:

Control Panel
Settings & Options
Edit Signature

Click Edit Signature and you can place what you wish in your sig. If you wish to advertise anything for commercial purposes you'll need to pay for a business signature. You'll also find helpful info in the FAQ section. The link to that is right next to the User CP link up top.

Oops, and here I thought NIP meant "Nipple in Place". "Nurse in Public" makes more sense.

LOL,

OK, I read through this whole thread and I did not see FFS. I'm thinking that it means something like free for sale, or maybe for a song, but that doesn't fit well.
(BTW, I did search for it first, but I don't always trust search engines!)

TIA
