For years, I wondered what “UPD” meant and why it appeared tagged on to posts and comments. For years. 

Googling it, of course, was not an option because come on.

And then, finally, by pure chance, I saw somebody posting it in Russian, and even though “АПД” means nothing whatsoever in Russian, I finally figured out what it means. 

It’s a nice feeling.
