Since you're smart and I am dumb- how do I block you on this board?

Better hit back with a reference.
Profile->Account Settings->Modify Profile has ignore options.

I'm guite sure there were also mmF, but can't remember which it was, milli milli or micro micro.
Though, I do remember that either pico or nano was missing.

I remember "the great nanofarad debate" in Electronics Australia magazine on whether or not they should change all their circuits to use nF and not just pF and uF.
Spoiler, the nF won.

In Brazilian magazines the flip to nF happened through the early 70s - although I was still a toddler/young child then, during the 80s I used to buy used magazines from the 60s~70s and could see the shift happening in retrospect. Quite interesting. A similar story happened with the shift from "condensador" (condenser) to capacitor, which happened in the late 50s - early 60s (also witnessed by me through old used magazines).

As for the multiplier factors, I have seen it all: µµF and mmF representing pF, MFD (common in oil capacitors) and MF/mF representing µF, and so on. It probably had to do with the capabilities of the stamping/printing machines of the time.
