How about throw some d’s on it? Does that mean throw some discraft on it or dynamic discs slogan.

How about my girlfriend pulled out my d cuz she likes the way it feels.

It doesn’t take long to type the whole word and with auto correct it’s even easier. The character count isn’t limited on this site, so how about making the message clear instead of making other people guess what is intended.

Discraft's abbreviation should be "DR".

You lost me though. So you are saying people in disc golf forums are more accepting of lazy nonsensical acronyms? Discraft is one word, why do you insist that we accept DC?
I just don't know why people keep wasting words to tell other people they can't use "DC" for Discraft. Unlike just using "D" (which does have other meanings that people use on these forums), DC is perfectly understandable to those reading it. Every abbreviation doesn't need to be an acronym, and people have been using DC for Discraft on here for ages. I personally usually type out the full name because I'm on a computer keyboard, but why would it bother me if someone uses DC for Discraft? If "lazy" is the worst adjective you can find for a group of people on an Internet forum, then we've got a pretty great community here.
