  • Scroll to the bottom of your screen and there are some helpful links. CM should totally make them bigger or up on top or something because no one knows they are there.

    Those abbreviations, though, aren't just on CM. They are pretty standard across the internet. I learned them on AOL message boards back in 2000 after my first daughter was born.
