Default what the 'ell does d'yime mean?

recently, while i was looking at one of the other posts, i realized that people would say a bunch of seemingly made up words such as d'yime and shtlm or sumthin like that. im posting it in tau due to the fact that i dont know if these words are just used on this forum or everwhere. i would like to know A: what other made up words are used on these forums (i asume they are used to represent "bad" words) B: what do they mean and :C where they came from, so i know when i am reading posts what people are talking about. thank you for your answers.

It's a censor, if you say a "bad" word it converts it into Tau. Or at least, the best guess at what the Tau translation would be.

If you're curious as to what's what, you could type a bunch of swear words and hit "preview", but yeah...on this site they don't like excessive swearing so I'd try not to make a post like that. :P

The one you're questioning in particular is "a-hole" I think.
