Does It Automatically Change The Initials?

There are a number of automatic substitution rules that affect your post. The most common two are gf becoming gluten-free and cd becoming celiac disease. We do this for a couple of reasons.

First, it improves the ability of search engines to find answers here when the terms are spelled out.

Second, it makes life simpler for frequent posters to just type two letters instead of spelling out these common phrases.

Sometimes it is disruptive, such as when a poster wants to refer to the latest compact disc release by a music artist.

If you really want to have the initials displayed, you can do that, as you can see from this post. Click on "Reply" to open a window where you can see how I did it. Then click on "Cancel" so as not to create an empty response.


Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
