should cafemom add an abbreviation glossary?

Does anyone else think it would be nice if we had an abbreviation glossary on one of the pull down tabs? It was difficult for me to get to know all of the abbreviations that people use here like DD, DH, DS, SO, BF, etc. I still don't know them all, and I have noticed that a lot of questions are from people asking what these mean. Wouldn't it be easier if we could just click and see for ourselves?

  • IMHO it' a great idea!! My DH DDs DS, and MIL would all agree with the OP. Then, when I make a good point and ask someone," KWIM?"they can look that up and understand what I am trying to say. If there's an abbreviation glossary on here, it would clear up alot of misunderstanding and we could spend more time ROFL!!!

  • That's a good idea. I have no idea what I'm reading half the time.

  • Thanks Kenzies momma...that did help, but I am really hoping for a pull down that is always at the top of the page and can be accessed with just a click. I can bookmark that page for easy access though.

    LOL Aprilmorgans. I had to look up least Kenzie posted first. Otherwise I'd still be scratching my head. Wasn't on the list itself...but I was able to decode by using the list. PITA, really. KWIM?
