I know that i am kind of young and i suppose to get it but sadly i don't. so my issue is please help me about with the dd. so, or whatever the abbreviations are, so when i read the next post i might get it.

pleas feel free to post any other abbreviations you can think off even if it's not related to CM because i don't know them in genera, except for some of the fluents ones use in texting.
