re yr ct (and its many variations) is a term that was commonly used in older, science fiction fanzine letter columns, letterzines, and APAs. It was adopted a few fannish media publications.

The term is used when referring to a member's previous comments, and is a way to keep track of "threaded comments" in previous issues. It was the nature of APAs to have been published two/three months or more previously, and communications could get tricky!
