i couldn't completely grasp the meaning of two lines below.
could u elaborate?

Subject: Re: DR/BDR recalculation doubt
There are two scenarios. The first being that this segmentation
also creates two disjoint autonomous systems. The effects are that
of having two completely different autonomous systems.
The more interesting scenario is when the autonomous system is still
intact but the network is disjoint. The SPF calculations still work
correctly whether there are 2 network-LSAS or 10 network-LSAS.
Remember that checks for reverse links must also be done. The SPF
nodes are completely distinct with the once difference that routes
derived from them will have the same prefix and prefix length.
Even though SPF is correct, routing could be screwed. You could end
up with assymetric routing, things being black holed, or maybe routing
