What's the first D in DD, DS, DH, etc stand for?

"Dear" -- I think -- or it could be "Darling" I suppose. I don't know the origin of the whole thing. Maybe some longtime member from way back can shed more light.

Tom,
Someone posted on one of the other threads a website called [url="http://www.netlingo.com"]www.netlingo.com[/url]
It lists all the common acronyms. DH and I had a ball reading some of them last night. We were ROFL!
TTFN,
Daisy

According to that site DD means Due Diligence. I don't think that's what people are saying.

If the net nanny allows it.....(damnn) could be what some people might be referring to. Of course mine are all dear. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

We have always been unsure, just assumed it meant "dear"... Good it has been brought up - net etiquette, net vocabulary, so much to learn nowadays...

Seems kinda weird to me. Dear or Darling in front of son, daughter, husband, wife? Who speaks that way in real life?

In real life, I will use the term Dear with son, husband, etc., but it has a bit of a sarcastic tone added to it. Here on PA it is just the way it was done when I got here -- I think when you frequent the site, you will find that it becomes a good way of identifying who you are talking about (male, female, son, daughter, husband, wife) without putting their names out over the internet.

I'm stuck in these wires - and I can't get out.
What the D stands for depends on the the mood at the time. Usually dear - but not always. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] But, that standard on most boards.
