    PAD? TAD? B&M? I give up. What do these mean? And while we're at it, what are the other most common acronyms, slang, etc. that I should expect to encounter here?

    Oops! Now that I checked it out more thoroughly, I see that the library could use a much-needed clean-up. Of particular note is that it is chock full of erroneous and space-gobbling blend abbreviations (the kind of stuff that nobody smokes) but is (and here's the irony) missing the only one that really counts ... a "DNC" for Dunhill Nightcap (or maybe that should just be a "DN"). I'll contact the administrator and have him get right on the purging process. No need to thank me. Remember, "The revolution will be complete when the language is perfect." - Orwell's 1984

    DGT is another popular one. Took me awhile to figure that out.
