Great post for the newbies (and those that have been on here for ages and to embaressed to ask what certain things meant)..I know it took me a LONG time to figure some out. 

STD kinda freaked me out at the beginning- post heading like "Show me your STD" or "My STD - Pic heavy" ...kinda messed untill I figured it out haha

Great list, I know this really helped me out when I was new!!

I am actually working on a big project at work and am in charge of the STDs...emails have been flying around about them for a few weeks now and I keep writing STD and then deleting and spelling out  because I know everyone here would be like "huh?"" LOL!
