comment Other than ChinaSMACK, do any other glossaries of acronyms used in Chinese, like PK, ZF, GCD, TMD, JC, etc exist?
I didn't mean the word outdated in a negative sense. Chinese seems to be changing quickly, especially with the internet - I didn't notice any changes to the glossary, or there were changes and I didn't notice them, so I just threw that word out there. The sense I meant to convey was - was I missing anything? I find the translations in chinaSMACK super useful and helpful in learning Chinese. Keep up the good work.

comment Having trouble translating this: 多是不跑步的替跑步的操心
Thanks for the 替...操心 pattern. It's not in "330 Common Chinese Patterns". Wondering if there is a more comprehensive listing of patterns anywhere.

comment Resources for learning Mandarin Chinese
Anyone know how to extract the audio from Happy Reading FM? I could record them, but downloading the audio files is way easier.

comment What does “理所应当的美好” mean?
So does context change the meaning? Here's an example from Baidu: 有人说:世上最愚蠢的事情就是在金钱和爱情面前卖弄自尊无数次地纠结后,发现有些问题无从解决,原本认为的那么理所应当的美好的理解,到此却真的是种理想. It doesn't make as much sense to me here.
