All right, I'll ask the obvious. What the heck is "(nt)"? Is it short for "(Non-technical)"?

(nt) means "no text", as in: "if you've read the subject line here, you don't need to read the body of my comment, as it contains no additional text."

The other usage I've seen is to put a $ at the end of the subject to indicate that's the end of the message.

Especially used when the comment is rejected if it has no text (hence n/t - a no-text comment!)
