    Dumb question but is there a thread about pop up portal acronyms? I keep seeing DW and DH? What do these mean? And are there others I should know? Thanks!

    I had the same issue when I joined the Portal. So I started a list. I thought it would be just a few common acronyms, but I was wrong. I haven't counted them, but it is probable a couple hundred now. I add probably 4 or 5 a week, so it continues to evolve. I find people love to use acronyms, and some are regional.

    It means wife and husband. I have no idea why people use those two (I despise them) but it seems to be an internet-wide thing and not just here.

    I assumed it was husband and wife but I wanted to know what the D meant. First time I’ve seen them anywhere is here on this forum. Thanks for the replies

    The “D” could stand for dear, doting, dumb, it all depends on your mood!

    I have a hard time keeping up with what FtHTwV9yg might mean as well. So you are not alone.
