3. "Kicked and Recommended"

i.e. they are showing approval for the post by "kicking" it back to the top by replying to it and they have "recommended" it by clicking on the DU rec button.

7. n/t ?

It means no more text where I just typed this. This area would be blank.

8. Maybe this Internet Slang

dictionary will help with some of the more obsure abbreviations

n/r can mean no response (NR), no reserve and some other things depending on context it seems.
